Kevin-Prince Boateng gets Ghana passport

Posted: 7 May 2010 Time: 13:34

Kevin-Prince Boateng has finally been handed a Ghanaian passport which clears the final hurdle in his bid to play at the 2010 World Cup.

The Portsmouth star's switch dragged for weeks over his father's Ghanaian connection but once that was cleared, world football governing body demanded proof f his own nationality.

It got officials of the Ghana High Commission working at breakneck speed on Tuesday to work out a Ghana passport for the midfielder who now expects FIFA to make the switch happen anytime soon.

"We have forwarded Kevin's passport and another document to Fifa. It's only a matter of time that a decision would be made on him.

"The submission of the passport completes all the requirements and we are certain that Fifa would act on it sooner. We expect a decision before the World Cup finals.

"For now, it’s only a matter of days for a pronouncement to be made."

Incompetent bunch of fools leading ghana football. How could a switch take about one full year to be completed? All those guys at the GFA should be voted out the next time....They have started thinking backwards and about their pockets. Useless fools.

I think the FA has kept too long this. So they should work extra hard to get this player into the team.
