In a huge blow to Ghana’s chances of defeating Portugal today, the Ghana Football Association has announced that both Kevin Prince-Boateng and Sulley Muntari have been suspended indefinitely from the national team and will not be playing in today’s crucial FIFA World Cup game against Portugal.
The Ghana FA has withdrawn Sulley Muntari’s accreditation as a World Cup player, and has issued the following statement:
“The decision was taken in the wake of his unprovoked physical attack on an Executive Committee member of the GFA and a management member of the Black Stars, Mr. Moses Armah on Tuesday 24th June, 2014 during a meeting.”
Meanwhile, Kevin Prince-Boateng has also been suspended indefinitely, and has his accreditation pulled as a player in the World Cup. The Ghana FA explained:
“The decision was taken following Boateng’s vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah during the team’s training session in Maceio this week.”
You have to wonder what Ghana’s morale will be like going into today’s crucial game against Portugal at Noon ET/9am PT today based on today’s controversy.
