'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boateng bonus!

Quite when this was announced, and how it has managed to sneak under the radar I do not know, but according to The Quay Kevin-Prince Boateng WILL NOT be going to the African Nations next month!

Boateng left out of Ghana squad - here

It says that he has 'been left out of the Ghana squad for the African Cup of Nations next month.

'He was expected to be part of the 23 man setup travelling to Angola for the tournament after recently pledging his International future to the Black Stars. However, he will now be available for all of Pompey's January games.'

I checked out Ghanaweb.com - here, and he has indeed been left out by all accounts, with this announcement made on Thursday.

Quite why this is I do not know?

Clearance needed to come through for him to switch from Germany - Ghana, so perhaps this has not/will not happen in time, hence him being left out? Then again perhaps he is just judged not good enough at the moment?

Either, the bonus of having arguably our most creative influence available to us when others will not be is fantastic news, right?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

That really is good news, we are gonna need as much strength as possible in the new year, And he has been a stand out player for most of the current season, lets hope it continues!!!!
NZ_Portsmuff

pompey--pessimist
Delighted for us but sorry for him!! Hopefully he'll get into their World Cup squad in the summer though, every lads dream to play in that tournament.

the thing that makes me scheptical is that sulley hasnt got in the team either.....appiah,maybe thats right as he hasnt a club but sulley? who plays for inter milan, just behind essien, their next most famous asset....if true, a very strange decision by the management and an awfully big risk.....unless hes long term injured i suppose
ruffcider
An early Christmas bonus, let's hope he takes his frustrations out on the opposition.
storagematt
Yep, best Xmas present so far
hammersmithblue
This, and the result today - has the tide turned in our favour?
PFCblue
Brilliant news for us but from watching todays game, and the one against Burnley does anybody else think that the Prince is carrying an injury? First half he seemed laboured and unwilling to track back which is unlike him. However cracking result and cracking game. Benitez to join the dole queue with Mark Hughes!!!
royalbluepompey
Now all we need is a few more left out of their respective sides. Why asks Rug? I don't care answers Dave!!
