Germany will be looking to silence Ghana's Kevin-Prince Boateng in their World Cup Group G match Saturday after the German-born midfielder accused Joachim Loew's team of lacking a "tough-guy" leader to carry them through tight matches.Boateng, who once played for Germany's Under-21 team before switching to Ghana, touched a nerve by saying that no German takes charge in tough games -- as in their semi-final defeat by Italy at Euro 2012 and a 4-4 draw with Sweden last year.Germany beat Ghana 1-0 in the final match of the 2010 World Cup group stage to top the standings but Ghana advanced as well. It was a historic match when Boateng and his brother Jerome, a Germany defender, become the first brothers to play against each other at a World Cup finals.
