Kevin-Prince Boateng sends late goodwill message, confident Ghana will beat Cape Verde

Published on: 02 February 2013

AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng has sent a late goodwill message to the Black Stars confident that they will beat Cape Verde in Saturday's Africa Cup of Nations match.

The Black Stars take on the Blue Sharks in the quarter-finals of the match in the South African city of Port Elizabeth.

Even though he prematurely retired from the Black Stars just over one year ago the Germany-born star has been following the Ghana national team with keen interest.

The Italy-based enforcer says he is confident Ghana will beat the debutantes to reach the last four of Africa's flagship football tournament.

"I wish Ghana all the best today. Pretty sure they gonna win!!," Boateng tweeted.

Boateng sent a congratulatory message to the Black Stars when they defeated Mali in their second Group B match at the tournament.

His message was well received by the Black Stars and coach Kwesi Appiah.

    I am glad KPB has kind words of support for his Ghana team-mates. Obviously KPB loves soccer and he believes in the Black Stars. He brought joy to Ghanaians during World Cup 2010 so let's show him Ghanaian hospitality and not abuse. He left it all on the line for his motherland and he deserves respect from his brothers and sisters from Ghana.

    JB please be civil. You don't make any point by insulting. What Boateng said is just the right thing for normal humans to say.

    Hey Ghanaians let's forget about this PISH POSH boy and focus on our game..insulting and turning down the face of a country that made you who you are to the dust and he wish to be in the team simply because he is now pissing off his team funs with his awkward performance,and now he thinks he can ride on our back to pick up his form back again..GO AWAY 'N **** YOU

    He is just a shameless fool who thinks Ghanaians are also stupid. We will resist all attempts to recall this fool into the team for the World Cup. He thought he was white until they showed him the banana. Now he has seen that nationality and race have nothing in common. He should read the leopard skins by Rev Thomas. "It is unsafe to walk in the streets of ghana" indeed.
