Jerome Boateng called up to Euro 2008
The recent headlines surrounding the Hertha youngster Jerome Boateng (18) have not been all positive. The young defender is currently sidelined with an ankle ligament injury. It is not all doom and gloom for the younger of the Boateng brothers currently under contract at the capital city club. Jerome was delighted to get a call from the German under-19 coach Frank Engel, who has called him up to his 18-man squad for the impending Euro 2008 under-19 competition in Austria, which will be played from July 16th until July 27th.
That means that Boateng will not attend the Hertha training camp in Stegersbach (Austria) which starts next Monday. The German under 19s are preparing for the European Championships with a five day training camp in Bavaria.
