Boateng out of Ghana squad for Congo & England games

Reuters, Wednesday 23 Mar 2011

An ankle injury has forced Ghana midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng to withdraw from his country’s squad for matches against Congo and England next week


The AC Milan player suffered an injury in a Champions League tie against former club Tottenham Hotspur and although he appeared as a substitute against Palermo on Saturday, he has not fully recovered, announced the Ghana Football Association on Wednesday.

No replacement has been named for the German-born Boateng, who switched his allegiance to Ghana prior to last year’s World Cup in South Africa, where he helped the Black Stars to a quarter-final place.

Ghana will meet the Congo team in Brazzaville on Sunday in an African Nations Cup qualifier and then England at Wembley next Tuesday.
