John Pantsil is not eligible for the rest of the Europa League Matches for Fulham this season

According to the Ealing Gazette, John Pantsil will be not be eligible to play next week, or any other game in the Europa League this season. Pantsil has been out with an injury, but is set to return shortly for Fulham in EPL matches. This is an unfortunate development for the team and Pantsil. 

According to the Ealing Gazette article, " Fulham suffer John Pantsil Euro blow"  Roy Hogdson revealed at his press conference that Pantsil is not available for the Semifinal. He also mentioned he would not be available for Fulham if they got to the Final of the Europa League. According to this article, the reason for Pantsil being ineligible is he wasn't registered in time for March's deadline. 

As mentioned prior, Pantsil could be ready to play as early as tomorrow against Wolverhampton. I look forward to seeing Pantsil back on the pitch soon. He is a very valuable player for the Cottagers.
