Hertha's super talent Kevin-Prince Boateng (18 ) is already a regular starter at Hertha. Now the midfielder is being chased by two national teams.

Kevin does not know whether to play for Germany or Ghana.

Boateng's father is Ghanaian and his mother a German and can currently play for both countries.

Boateng confirmed his call-up by Ghana to the Berliner Zeitung yesterday: "Yes, last week the Ghanaian FA called me and asked whether I will be ready to play for the country of my father. The World Cup would be a dream for me, this is going to be a very difficult decision."

This could be a blow for Germany's football future. The midfield pearl played for all German junior national teams up to the Under-20 team.

Boateng would have World Cup guarantee with Ghana, but the Klinsmann squad looks tight in midfield.

Kevin did not bury his biggest dream: "I would prefer to play with Germany at the World Cup,but I see a little chance.
