Boateng brothers to battle in World Cup.....again
International brothers Derek and Jérôme Boateng are set to do battle in the World Cup once again, as Ghana and Germany were drawn together once again in Group G for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
Both men started when the two sides met in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, with younger brother Jérôme coming out on top when Germany emerged with a 1-0 win in Group D at Soccer City in Johannesburg. The group at the time was considered one of the two “groups of death”, which featured Brazil and Portugal.
The goalscorer on that day was new Arsenal face Mesut Özil, and Germany went on to win the group, with Ghana finishing second. The Africans went out on penalties against Uruguay, while Germany lost to eventual winners Spain in the semi-finals – an eerie foreshadowing considering the Champions League semi-finals in 2012 featured only German and Spanish sides.
