CAPETOWN: AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng has declared himself willing to play for Ghana again, just weeks before their vital World Cup qualifying tie against Zambia in Kumasi.
“I have decided to change my decision and confirm my availability to play for the Black Stars whenever I am needed,” Boateng wrote in a letter to the Ghana Football Association (GFA). Ghana have written back welcoming his decision, even though the 26-year-old cold shouldered them after the 2010 World Cup. The Ghanaians are on the cusp of a place at the 2014 finals in Brazil, needing a draw in their last group game to go through to the final round playoffs in October and November.
Boateng was born in Germany to a Ghanaian father and German mother and switched allegiance after playing for the Germans at junior level, making his debut for the Black Stars just weeks before the 2010 World Cup.
