Jerome Boateng Germany defender Jerome Boateng admits to having a few mixed feelings ahead of tonight’s FIFA World Cup clash with Ghana. However, it is not so much his position which is causing Boateng such heartache, but the fact he will be up against his brother Kevin-Prince Boateng and his father’s homeland.

“My father tells me that games in Ghana are like bank holidays, and my family members from Germany say the same,” he said. “The whole family come together and have a good time. It’s very important for me to visit Ghana one day, and that makes it all the more regrettable that I’ve not managed to yet.

“Such a large part of my family lives there and it interests me to know how they play, what conditions the people have there. From my family members, I know that they all watch my games. I know how much they get involved.”

Boateng could prove quite unpopular among his family on Saturday with a win for Germany potentially enough to send Ghana home after just two matches. He has already cut off all contact with half-brother Kevin-Prince, the Schalke midfielder who may be lining up against him. That was more intentional, however.

“It is a bit strange but I’m not missing our regular contact,” he said on the website of the German federation. “The World Cup is a special situation and I think it just wouldn’t be right if we remained in touch with each other. I am with Germany and my full focus is on my tasks here.”

Brother Kevin-Prince is not a certainty to start having been left on the bench for Ghana’s first game – a 2-1 defeat to the United States.

It is the third time Germany have met Ghana

 

Jerome Boateng - Kevin-Prince BoatengBoateng  brothers were both born in Berlin, but in 2009, Schalke’s Kevin-Prince, 27, opted to play for the country of his father. They will face each other on when Germany plays Ghana tonight.

One thing is for sure brotherly love will be forgotten tonight when  Germany’s Jerome Boateng faces his sibling Ghana’s Kevin-Prince Boateng predicting a ‘fight to the death’.

This is not the first time the brothers have played each other at a World Cup.

In South Africa, they set a record by becoming the first brothers to play against each other at a World Cup finals.

Jerome Boateng is hoping to play for the Black Stars, Ghana’s national team. He has applied for a Ghanaian passport, which is only a formality at this point. The Ghana Football Association is depending on him to be a member of its team when it heads to South Africa for the World Cup in June.

Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
