THOMAS PARTEY met his incredible ‘Thomas After Partey’ double – and his Ghanaian teammates were understandably in hysterics.
The Arsenal midfield has joined forces with the Black Stars for the crucial World Cup play-off against rivals Nigeria.
And ahead of Friday’s 0-0 first-leg draw in Kumasi, striker Kofi Kyereh posted the sensational video on his Instagram story.
In the hilarious clip, the original lot wears Ghana training shirt and white shorts.
He wraps his arm around the doppelganger, who has a shockingly similar face shape, hairstyle, beard, and smile.
And to top it off, Partey 2.0 rocks arsenal Warm-up t-shirt just like the £200,000-a-week star at the Emirates.
However, the unknown “twin,” who completed the look with black trousers, funky Nike trainers and a designer bucket bag, is a few inches shorter.
Regardless, behind the camera, the couple and Ghana team couldn’t hide their laughter at the phenomenal similarities.
And Kyereh included a photo of the duo and captioned it “Thomas Partey and Thomas After Partey” in a high-profile joke.
Fans on social media loved it too.

One wrote: “Naw this guy looks more like Thomas than Thomas.”
Another asked: “How is that even possible?”
But it would take something very special for the doppelganger to mimic what Partey has been doing on the pitch lately.
The former Atletico Madrid has been in red-hot form for Arsenal, lifting the club’s Player of the Month title in February.
He then backed this up with a excellent performance against Leicester, scored the opening goal and then hit the woodwork.
That led to one Twitter joking that the meeting was between new Emirates No5 Partey and his former No18 from last season.
And a final person explained: “From the way he’s been playing so well lately it looks like there are two of him on the pitch now we know the truth.
“Of course, now the secret is out, we will be penalized for playing 12 players – there will probably be a fine, a few points lost and Xhaka cautioned.”
Now Ghana’s interim coach Otto Addo will be desperate for more of the same Second leg in Abuja, where victory would book their place at Qatar 2022.
