Thomas Partey featured as Atletico Madrid overcame English Premier League side Arsenal via penalty shootouts in the International Champions Cup on Thursday.

The Ghanaian started the game and excelled in midfield but was substituted in the second half as the La Liga side continue preparations ahead of the new campaign.

The match ended 1-1 in normal time.  Arsenal teenager Emile Smith-Rowe cancelled out Luciano Vietto's opener to take the game to a shootout.

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Antonio Adan saved three penalties and scored the winning kick as Arsenal lost 3-1 in Singapore.

Atleti face the French side Paris Saint German next in the competition on Monday.
