Pompey NOT at the world cup - Kevin Prince Boateng
The world cup, as far as current Pompey involvement goes is over after Kevin-Prince Boateng's Ghana went out on penalties to Ghana last night, unfortunately so.
His reputation has been enhanced massively in South Africa though, so 'fingers crossed' we now get a price for him that is fitting?
I will hand over to russellm who shares these thoughts...
The Prince HAS become a King
I can tell you he had a quiet first 20 minutes, but then he decide to wake up linking well with Gyan and the defence. He brought Asimoah into the game and had a rasping low level shot just pass the post with the keeper beaten.
Boateng, who joined Ghana properly for the first time a month ago, became a real handful for the Uruguayans in what was a really open game tearing the blue and whites apart he set up the team for an old time Muntari special which flew past the keeper in the top corner.
Some players can only raise themselves for the big game and when the ITV commentator called "Prince" one of "the players of the tournament" the player agreed, strong tackles and real effort culminated in a bicycle kick that just sailed over the bar, replay showed it came of the player's shin.
What price the Prince now?
