Thursday, 17 March 2011 - Kevin Prince Boateng could miss this month’s crucial African Cup of Nations clash with Congo and the England friendly because of an ankle injury. AC Milan have written to the Ghana FA to alert them of the troubling right ankle problem that is threatening to curtail his season. He aggravated the ankle problem during training on Wednesday which could rule him out of the two important matches later this month. Despite the warning, AC Milan have revealed that he has not been completely ruled out as he could recover for the weekend’s clash with Palermo. Striker Emmanuel Clottey and defender Mohammed Awal on the stand-by list.
Tuesday, 22 March 2011 - Sulley Muntari gives Ghana's preparations for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo a major boost as he is expected in camp tomorrow. The midfielder's participation in the game in Brazzaville was in doubt after he limped off with a calf injury after just 19 minutes for Sunderland in Sunday's 2-0 home defeat by Liverpool in the Premier League.
Wednesday, 23 March 2011 - It is likely AC Milan's midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng would be likely to play in Ghana's game against Congo if the Ghana Football Association is not convinced about his injury report, the FA's vice-president Fred Pappoe has hinted. The German-born Ghanaian international pulled out of Sunday's vital African Cup of Nations match in Brazzaville claiming he aggravated an ankle injury after his Club's clash with Palermo last week.
Thursday, 24 March 2011 - Goran Stevanovic says he will retain the same team from Congo when they face England in an international friendly next week Tuesday. “We will retain the same team to travel to London for the England friendly but right now I will not speak anything about the England match since our main focus is on the match against Congo which is a must win for us,” the Serbian said.
Friday, 25 March 2011 - Opoku Agyemang cannot make it for this weekend's qualifier against Congo after "mysteriously" losing his passport. The Al Ahli player was scheduled to leave Qatar on Thursday morning to join his team mates in Nairobi, Kenya but was shocked to learn that he has misplaced his travelling document. Agyemang was barred from travelling early this week and was asked to play in a crucial game for his club on Wednesday's before leaving but his dream has fizzled into thin air. “I have asked the Police and Immigration officials who prevented me from travelling on Tuesday but there's still no response. Initially I thought I left it in my money bag but I have searched everywhere and can't find it. I have also contacted the taxi drivers; maybe I left it in one of the them on my way back home after I was frustrated at the airport. I have spoken to Fred Pappoe (Ghana FA Vice president) and we are looking at other options.”
Sunday, 27 March 2011 - Sulley Muntari scored the third goal to give Ghana a convincing 3-0 win over Congo after a first half double by Prince Tagoe and Dominic Adiyiah.
