Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng remains Orlando Pirates and Swazi mational team midfielder Dennis Masina's biggest worry ahead of their Afcon clash at Somhlolo Stadium in Mbabane this weekend.
Boeteng picked up a knock during the Black Stars' training in Soweto yesterday which might be good news for Swazi's if the AC Milan star fails to recover in time for what is set to be a massive game for the tiny Kingdom on Sunday. Speaking to KickOff.com, Masina picked out Boateng as the danger man and urged his teammates to keep close eye on him. "I watched him when AC Milan played Barcelona recently; he is a handful. It is no secret that Ghana has a lot of quality players but Boateng remains the danger man. He has got speed, the ability to take on players and is an all-round team player. We must keep a close watch on him." The Swazi national team is currently camped in Mhlume in Lubombo region and has been boosted by the arrival of Santos winger Tony Tsabedze this week. Other South Africa-based players in Swazi team are the Jomo Cosmos trio of Mfanafuthi Bhembe, Siza Dlamini and Phinda Dlamini. Speaking to KickOff.com, Dlamini says the spirit in their camp was very high. "I have been in camp with the national team before but I have never seen this kind of spirit in our camp. We are ready to die to make our country proud by beating Ghana on Sunday."
