Schalke 04 ace Kevin-Prince Boateng has stated that he is itching to play at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals Brazil.
The 27-year-old is set to play in his second successive tournament after a flourishing debut in South Africa four years ago.
Boateng, whose nationality switch was ratified by FIFA before the 2010 finals, is yearning to hit the ground running in Brazil.
During a visit to his former club AC Milan last week, he said: "I'm happy to go to the World Cup and I’m here to see Essien and Muntari."
Boateng has been excused to see his doctor and will meet up with Ghana’s squad in Rotterdam on 24 May to prepare for the pre-World Cup friendly against Holland.
