Kevin-Prince Boateng to join Ghana camp late for Congo and South Korea matches

The German-born Ghanaian international finally has the opportunity to play his home debut in Kumasi after missing out seven months ago
AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng will join the Ghana camp on Monday, according to coach Goran Stevanovic.

The Black Stars began their training sessions on Thursday in the capital Accra ahead of their 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier against Congo and an international friendly with South Korea.

“Kevin will join the team on Monday because I have spoken to him and he has the approval to join us late in camp,” Stevanovic told

The four-time African champions are playing Congo in Kumasi on June 3 and it is set to be Boateng’s home debut after he switched allegiences to play for the west Africans.

The last time the former Portsmouth player featured for the Black Stars was their 3-0 victory over Swaziland in September 2010. He missed an earlier opportunity to play at home against Sudan that same year.

After the Congo game, the World Cup quarter-finalists will fly to Asia for a June 7 friendly in Seoul against South Korea.
