Injured Kevin-Prince Boateng sends goodwill message to Black Stars
Crocked midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has wished the Black Stars well against Egypt in a 2014 World Cup playoff first leg on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old has been ruled out due to injury while in action for German club Schalke last Saturday.
The former AC Milan star will thus play no part in the first leg of the playoff tie against the record African champions in Kumasi.
Boateng has wished his international teammates well days ahead of the crunch game against the seven-time African champions.
“I wish the Ghana Black Stars all the best of luck for the game against Egypt! Very sorry I can’t be there and help,” he tweeted.
Boateng missed last month’s qualifier against Zambia also through injury.
His latest injury has succeeded in restricting him to just one appearance for the Black Stars on home soil since becoming a Ghana international in 2010.
