*Africa’s Most Memorable World Cup*
3. Boateng vs. Boateng (2010)
When Ghana and Germany met in the group stage of the 2010 tournament, the meeting was notable for the presence of two brothers. While siblings have played on the same side in past editions of the tournament, this was the first occasion in the competition’s history that brothers have competed on opposing sides.
It could have all been so different, as both Jerome and Kevin-Prince starred for Germany’s youth teams as younger men.
While the defender opted to stick with the European side in his later career, the attacking midfielder decided to represent that land of his father and threw his hat into the ring with the Black Stars.
Germany got the better of Ghana thanks to Ozil 60th minutes strike.
