Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari have been suspended indefinitely from the Ghana national team and consequently had their World Cup accreditation withdrawn by the Ghana FA today.

The suspension of the duo comes hours before Ghana’s final group match in the 2014 World Cup against Portugal, a match Ghana must win to have any chance of progressing to the knockout stage.

According to a statement by the GFA, the decision to suspend Boateng was taken ”following Boateng’s vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah during the team’s training session in Maceio this week. Boateng has since showed no remorse for his actions which has resulted in the decision.”

The statement further read that Muntari’s suspension comes after an ”unprovoked physical attack on an executive committee member of the GFA and a management member of the Black Stars, Mr Moses Armah on Tuesday 24th June, 2014 during a meeting.”

With their World Cup accreditation stripped with immediate effect, Boateng and Muntari are ineligible for the match tonight against Portugal and any further matches for Ghana till further notice.
