World Cup 2010: Ghana Provisional Squad - Kevin-Prince Boateng makes the cut

The squad includes balance of youth and experience...

Ghana have unveiled a 30-man provisional squad for the World Cup 2010 in South Africa.

Coach Milovan Rajevac included Kevin-Prince Boateng, although his nationality switch is yet to be finalised by world football governing body FIFA.

The list will be pruned down to 23 by June 1.

Star players who are yet to recover from injuries - Michael Essien and John Mensah – made it into the list alongside Qatar-based Quincy Owusu-Abeyie. Bologna’s Stephen Appiah is also named despite the fact that he has not played at club level for some while now.

Four locally-based players earned places in the team, with three of them being goalkeepers.

Conspicously missing from the list was goal-poacher Eric Bekoe of Egyptian side Petrojet.
