Daniel Amartey shines in the Europa League as Sparta Prague stuns Leicester City

As their Europa League campaign ended after a 2-0 aggregate defeat to Sparta Prague on Thursday, Ghana defender Daniel Amartey was in action for Leicester City.

Since they are the third-best side of the Premier League, the Foxes were strongly tipped to progress to the next level of the competition.

Yet they were beaten by a more cohesive and eventually stronger team on a night that hopefully won’t be beaten as the most frustrating of the season.

Slavia’s performance at the King Power Stadium, secured by second-half goals from Lukas Provod and Abdallah Sima, was not lucky.

Amartey, who was deployed as a right-back, did nothing wrong, but Brendan Rodgers’ side was unbalanced by his lack of attacking instincts and it made them much easier to defend against.

The 26-year-old was substituted in the 61st minute by Ricardo Pereira.

He appeared nine times in all of the club’s competitions.
