2014 World Cup: Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng has no problems facing brother in key clashes

Published on: 22 June 2014
Kevin and Jerome played against each other on Saturday

Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng insists he has no problem at all playing against any member of his family following another clash against his brother Jerome in the 2-2 draw with Germany.

The Schalke star lined up for the second time in the World Cup against his younger brother after choosing to play for Ghana back in 2010.

Both brothers however failed to live up to their pre-match hype with both going off after the first half for varied reasons.

Some have suggested an unexplained tension on the side of Kevin whenever playing against his brother, be it for club or country.

But the 27-year-old is adamant he has no mixed feeling whenever playing against a close relative.

“I just go on the field every game – whether it is against my brother or my father – it doesn't matter,” he told

“I always try to go on the field to do my best.”

    In our next match,AA should bench kpb because the HEAT IS HAVING AN EFFECT ON HIM! He is an european by birth, born and bread in Germany and just as all the European teams are suffering from the heat in Brazil, KPB too is having issues with the heat! It has not been the VINTAGE KPB that we know all because of the Brazilian HEAT! Our boys are doing great because the heat is not having any effect on them! AA should bench him and introduce him during the dying mins of our match!

    He is a waste of space. I do not see any seriousness in him atall. He is a spy for the Germans. He has finished what he set out to do in our team. He is just there to enjoy himself with us but not to play.
