“Brother, it’s time again…that’s how beautiful life is! Can’t wait…love u bro!!” That was what Ghana’s Kevin-Prince Boateng tweeted after knowing that Germany had drawn Ghana in the FIFA World Cup 2014. Kevin’s brother Jerome Boateng plays for Germany. The match at Estadio Castelao on Saturday will not be the first time the Boateng brothers clash in a World Cup. They also played when Germany beat Ghana 1-0 at the 2010 edition in South Africa in the group stages.

 

Ghana, disheartened by their 1-2 loss against the United States, might be looking at an early elimination when they meet three-time winners Germany, who proved their worth against Portugal with a credible 4-0 win.

 

“It will be a tough match because Germany is the top candidate for Group G and they will play with great confidence after winning 4-0 against a team like Portugal. We will be affected psychologically but we will face them with determination,” Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan said.
