Ghana made an early exit from the 2014 World Cup as the nation failed to make it out of the group stages after sustaining defeats against United States and Portugal and only being able to pick up a draw when playing with Germany. With all of these negative results, Ghana only managed on securing 1 point during the group stages which was the lowest amount in their group.
United States, Portugal and Germany were all of the opponents that Ghana had to face during the group stages and it doesn’t come to a big surprise that the guided by Kwesi Appiah was unable on picking up more points considering the amount of experience and big name players that the squad of Ghana lacked compared to their opponents.
The news that is really making its way to the headlines of newspaper and has caused controversy it’s the incident involving Kevin-Prince Boateng with the head coach Kwesi Appiah.
Before Ghana played their last match of the group stages against Portugal, Prince Boateng was sent home along with Muntari after the former Ac.Milan player was believed to have verbally abused Kwesi Appiah.
Prince Boateng is currently out on a suspension and according to the head coach Kwesi Appiah, he has no intentions of recalling the player back to the team anytime soon.
Kwesi Appiah said: “I believe in discipline and I will not allow anything to affect the team and for now, Kevin-Prince Boateng is not part of my plans. The head coach Kwesi Appiah continued on saying that he will only consider bringing players to the national team that are disciplined, committed and ready to die for the country.”
