Stoke winger Pennant blocked from entering USA

Stoke City winger Jermaine Pennant was blocked by authorities from entering the US this week.

The Sun says the Potters arrived in Columbus, Ohio without Pennant.

The winger was refused a working visa there because of a previous criminal conviction.

Pennant took out his frustration at missing City's opening tour game against Columbus Crew by scoring a stunning free-kick against Corby Town in a low-key friendly.

He now faces an anxious wait to see if the US authorities will process his application in time to join his team-mates in Orlando or Kansas.
