Prince back on national duty…
Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has confirmed that Kevin-Prince Boateng has made himself available to play for Ghana national team again.

“According to Kevin, the physical demands of playing for both club and country at high levels are taking a toll on his health,” a Ghana FA statement read at the time.
Boateng, according to his statement at the time, explained that in order to remain healthy and stay off any injuries, he had consulted his doctors and family over the matter decided to take the decision to excuse himself from national duties since he was on a special training that he has to interrupt to honor national invitations.
“Before Ghana played Sudan he had confirmed to the coach he was coming back to play”, the president said on South African TV. “Unfortunately he got injured during training with Milan and so could not make it.”
He has not played for Ghana since an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo in October 2010.
The Milan player, who has Ghanaian and German parentage, switched his international allegiances to Ghana in time for the 2010 world cup after persistent snubs by Germany.
He then went on to play a major part in Ghana’s run to the quarter-finals of the before announcing his retirement from international football after only nine caps including just one game on Ghanaian soil.
