Pompey at the world cup - Kevin-Prince Boateng

The world cup WILL have plenty of former Pompey players involved in the 2nd round, although we will also have a sprinkling of current players also playing 'at least' one more game...

Ghana beaten but Boateng lives on

Some thoughts are that it would be better for Pompey players to be eliminated earlier so they can be sold on quicker, although for me the opposite can be said about Kevin-Prince Boateng.

For me the more that he plays the better he is getting for Ghana, and I thought he had another fantastic game for his adopted country last night, where he and his brother Jerome made history at the world cup by becoming the first brothers to play against each other, when Citeh's new signing lined up for Germany.

Ghana lost 1-0, although they went through in 2nd place on goal difference ahead of Australia, who paid the price for a heavy defeat in their opening game.

Yep, I though Boateng, whilst perhaps overdoing it a little at times - this is his way though - had a really good game and 'surely' would have only added to the interest in him, which hopefully he will do further still on Saturday against America!

Before I finish just a word, whilst talking about Ghana, about a former Pompey player who was involved in this game - Sulley Muntari.

The guy, as russellm and I discussed during and after the game, looks a shadow of the player that he is and for us is a disruptive influence on the Ghanaian set-up. This is proven by the amount of times he has been disciplined whilst on international duty. We thought he was lazy, selfish and poor in, and out, of possession and think, on his showing in South Africa so far, the African nation would be better off without his involvement on Saturday!

Remember to follow England, and the world cup in general, with us on Vital England - here.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

    to be fair to Ghana Lahm ahould of been sent off and they should of had a penalty and even so they where still only beaten by an incredably nice strike from ozil and probably should of scored at least 1 of the many chances they had. but Boateng was pretty integral in the game and put on a fantastic performance, which will have only raised his price i should think lol.
