German-born Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed the Black Stars will etch their names in the history books at this year’s FIFA World Cup finals.

He is looking forward to Ghana progressing into the medal zone for the first time by an African representative.

The 27-year-old was instrumental in Ghana’s quarter-final feat at the last World Cup finals in South Africa and he is confident they can go far.

“We are not going to the World Cup to make up the numbers,” the Schalke 04 icon said

“We are looking forward to making history and upsetting the record books when we arrive in Brazil.”

Boateng has ten caps with two goals for the Black Stars, and was among the ten players nominated for African Footballer of the Year in 2010 and 2011.

He will be making his second bow at the World Cup stage come this June after opting to play for Ghana instead of the country of his birth Germany.

    dud, u can't be too optimistic about our chances when the team is playing without the needed swiftness, passion, accuracy and aggression.

    Ijahman. Me and u both think same. That's the squad right there100 percent. Put David Addy in that last spot or another striker, since Asamoah can also play there

    Yeah 21 guns if we fix the midfield and solidify our defence then that will be our door to succeess. The defence and midfield must be made tight because that was the way we played in wc 2010 in sa. Appiah must forget of playing an attacking game.we have to stick to the defence. Appiah must stop experimenting now.there is no time for experiment. If he plays his cards right all shall be well. The same thing happened to us in 2010 when we lost against bosnia and holland and many wrote us off. With the right system we can compete with them
