John Pantsil

Ghana defender John Pantsil played in a friendly match for English side Millwall in their 2-0 victory at League One side Crawley Town on Saturday.

The right-back, who recently left Israeli outfit Hapoel Tel Aviv, started training with the club this week in a bid to get himself fit for possible opportunities.

Despite just being given the opportunity to train with Millwall he was given the chance to impress in the friendly.

Pantsil came on as a second-half substitute as they cruised to the victory.

The new manager also handed a start to Nicky Shorey, with fellow trialists John Pantsil and Lee Croft named on a 14-strong bench.

As expected, it was a completely different Lions XI after the break as Pantsil and Croft got their chance to impress.

Next up is beaten League One play-off finalists Brentford away on Tuesday.

The move is meant to keep the defender fit as his agents continue to trawl the market for an opportunity for the Ghanaian to sign for a club.

He has not been offered a trial at Millwall but just a mere chance to keep himself fit in case a club should ask about his fitness.

Pantsil will train with Millwall?s first team until he gets a club.
The right-back played for English sides West Ham, Fulham and Leicester City before returning to Israel last year to the club where he started his European career.

Millwall starting XI: Forde, Dunne, Shittu, Osbourne, Shorey, Henry, Abdou, Jack Smith, Martin, Easter, Morison.
Millwall second half: Bywater, Wright, Robinson, Feeney, Marquis, Woolford, Pantsil, Croft, Malone, Beevers, N?Guessan. Att: 1,391.
