Brasilia, Brazil (SportsNetwork.com) - Midfielders Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Ali Muntari were handed indefinite suspensions by the Ghana Football Association and ordered to leave the World Cup.

The GFA announced the news in separate statements on their website, just hours before the nation's final Group G game against Portugal in Brasilia on Thursday.

Muntari's suspension was handed down "in the wake of his 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," the GFA said.

Boateng was sanctioned following "vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah during the team's training session in Maceio this week," the GFA said.

Boateng had shown "no remorse for his actions" and both players had their World Cup accreditation withdrawn.
