The 19-year-old was born to Ghanaian parent in Wandsworth, England and eligible to play for any of the two soccer nations.

Boateng says he need a cool head to decide his international allegiance.

“[I can represent either England or Ghana]. This is a tricky one but I will have to be on the cool first and then I will make the decision later,” he is quoted by the Crystal Palace’s Academy Spotlight show.

The left-footed defensive midfielder has established himself in the Under-21 side notching a goal in 17 appearances so far.

He is easily remembered for his sensational carbon copy of Diego Maradona’ s goal of the century for Crystal Palace as they were beaten 4-2 by Colchester in January.
