John Pantsil’s Facebook status tells us he won’t be going to Angola:

mum and dad, families, friends, fans, love once, PPKP, ghanaians, i just want to say a big sorry to all of you for not making it to the nations cup Angola 2010!!! i promise you all that, this team will bring the cup without me in the name of our good Lord… every body say Amen… Go Ghana, Go Black Stars Of Ghana… …

He was so strong against Drogba on Monday and it’s tempting to think that the game turned with his departure due to that knee injury as he slid into the advertising hoardings just in front of me. Let’s hope the problem isn’t as bad as first feared and that we’ll see him pull on a Fulham shirt again this season.
