Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Teye Partey has praised their mental strength after netting a last-gasp match-winner over Eibar in La Liga on Sunday.

Six minutes after coming on for Joao Felix, the Ghana international turned hero for Los Rojiblancos with a fine finish to make it 3-2 for his side in injury time.

It was a dramatic comeback for Atletico as Charles and Anaitz Arbilla gave visiting Eibar in a two-goal lead before Felix and Vitolo scored to make it 2-2 for the hosts.

“We suffered at the beginning of the match, but the team never stopped believing," Partey said, as reported by hi club's official website after the game.

"After the second goal, everything went great for us."

Sunday's outing was Partey's third league appearance of the season, the goal his first.

Last term, he played 32 times in La Liga, starting 23 of the matches and scoring thrice.

Atletico, top of the table with a 100 per cent record so far this season, next face Real Sociedad on September 14.
