Ghana's Thomas Teye Partey was in action as Atletico Madrid came from one goal behind to beat Eibar 3-1 in Saturday's La Liga clash at the Vicente Calderon.
Ghana midfielder plays in Atletico comeback win
Thomas Teye Partey plays 59 minutes for Atletico Madrid.
The young midfielder was however substituted in the 59th minutes after he was replaced by promising winger Oliver Torres.
Both sides struggled for clear-cut chances in the latter stages of the first period, with a long-range strike from Correa and poked effort from Eibar's Jota just about the closest either came before the referee brought the opening half of action to a close.
Eibar were ahead barely two minutes into the second period, however, when Sergi Enrich took advantage of a slip from Saul before squaring for former Atletico attacker Keko, who placed his effort beyond the reach of Jan Oblak.
The response from Atletico was strong, with Saul and Yannick Ferreira Carrasco both coming close to levelling the scores, but it was Gimenez's close-range header from a Koke corner that tied the game at 1-1 in the 56th minute.
Atletico then had their second in the 63rd minute when Saul, who was at fault for Eibar's opener, rose highest inside the box to head a Koke corner past Asier Riesgo.
Fernando Torres was next to come close for the dominant hosts, but the striker could only poke wide of the post under pressure from Riesgo. There was still time for the Spaniard, however, as he converted a Vietto cross in stoppage time to make it a century of goals for the capital club.
