German-born Ghanaian international, Kevin-Prince Boateng, has hailed Germany's talisman, Toni Kroos, as a sensation for his winner against Sweden in their second group game at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Kroos scored a 90th minute winner after curling in a free-kick to give Germany a chance to qualify to the knockout stage of the tournament.

The Ghanaian international, who featured for the Black Stars in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, has been following the ongoing global showpiece with keen interest and praised the Real Madrid midfielder for his spectacular goal on Saturday.

He wrote on twitter," Kroos, pure technique. #sorryforlatepost". Boateng, who was born in Germany but opted to play for the Stars was instrumental in Ghana's quarter final feat during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Meanwhile, Boateng's younger brother, Jerome Boateng, was showed a red card in Germany's 2-1 win over Sweden after receiving two yellow cards.

He is expected to miss their crucial encounter with South Korea on June 27 with Mats Hummels set to partner Antonio Rudiger in the centre of defence.
