Ghana want Inter Milan striker Balotelli for World Cup

Ghana want to include Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli in their World Cup squad.

Balotelli has dual nationality having been born to parents from Ghana before being adopted by an Italian family.

"Tomorrow I leave for South Africa and after the draw I will go directly to Europe. I have a schedule of meetings with my players who are at work in various European Leagues and it's my intention to speak with Balotelli," Ghana manager Milovan Rajevac said.

"I have discussed it with the President and the Vice-President of the Ghanaian FA and they have given me the all clear. The idea is that of going to Bologna to find our captain, Stephen Appiah, and making him accompany me to Milan to meet Mario and Muntari.

"I am happy with the strikers that I have, but Balotelli's qualities are exceptional. He is young. He plays at a big club and he is very very good."
