While many Black Stars fans feel the Gunners player was a let-down, others are happy with his input for the West African nation in the World Cup.

Football fans have 'flooded' Thomas Partey's Instagram account expressing strongly differing opinions regarding the Arsenal star's influence for the Black Stars at the World Cup.

The West African played all three Group H matches for Ghana who were eliminated after finishing at the bottom of their group with three points.

The only victory for the Black Stars came in their second match against South Korea whereby they emerged 3-2 victors. However, they had lost their opening match against Portugal by the same margin before losing 2-0 against Uruguay.

Partey was remorseful and went on to promise better next time.

"It was our biggest wish to give Ghanaians something to cheer about but, unfortunately, it didn’t go as we wanted," the Arsenal defensive midfielder posted.

"I want to say a huge thank you for the unconditional support from home and across the world. "With the support of God, we will come back stronger."

    Arsenal and Ghana are different

    You really can’t compare Club and country. The setup is different, the talent pool is different the pattern of play is different, and the quality of the team is different. How did Ghana reach the World Cup? And wasn’t Partey like second or thirrd leading goal scorer in qualifying? Playing in a World Cup is the biggest motivator for any player and remember that’s a dream they have had from a kid. Give the players and the team some credit, they’ve done well - Jrmn Omar
