The pair were in direct opposition during the first half in Fortaleza as right-back Jerome was tasked with marking left-winger Kevin-Prince.

But that was where the rivalry ended and Jerome was replaced at half-time by former Everton defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Kevin-Prince, meanwhile, was withdrawn just seven minutes later in the wake of Mario Gotze’s opening goal for the Germans.

Ghana took a 2-1 lead thanks to goals from Asamoah Gyan and Andre Ayew but Miroslav Klose came from the bench to claim a 2-2 draw in a thrilling contest.

Jerome came out on top four years ago in South Africa as Germany emerged 1-0 winners during the group stage, both countries eventually advancing to the second phase.
