Boateng impresses Milovan on debut

Kevin-Prince Boateng's debut game for Ghana has been described by Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac as impressive.

The 23-year old played in a holding midfield role alongside Anthony Annan during Ghana's final warm-up game against Latvia in Milton Keynes before the World Cup.

Though he came close to scoring after his shot drifted narrowly off the post, Rajevac has pated the player for playing in an unfamiliar role on his debut.

“It was his first game and he played in an unfamiliar role, for him but he handled it quiet well. It is the role I want to give him but for a first game with Ghana he did well,” the Black Stars coach said.

Boateng, who lasted 66 minutes, will now be heading to South Africa with the rest of the Ghana squad who would be leaving London on Sunday.

Ghana plays Serbia in the first World Cup game before facing Australia and Germany in Group D.
