Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng will play the return leg fixture of the World Cup play-off against Egypt if he is fully fit.
The Schalke ace missed the first leg tie due to a knee injury but is expected to return to full scale training on Monday after recovering from the set-back.
Reports in the local media have suggested Kwesi Appiah has penciled down the 26-year-old in his squad for the return leg at the Minitary stadium in Cairo if he does not pick another injury.
The Black Stars are almost certain of qualifying to their third successive World Cup after a resounding 6-1 win over the Pharaohs in Kumasi last Tuesday.
Boateng’s return is expected to fortify the already star-studded team as they aim for a win away from home.
The heavy win has caused massive confusion in the North African country with the future of coach Bob Bradley the centre of intense speculations.
Egypt sports minister Taher Abou-Zeid has confirmed the American won’t be in charge after the second leg in Cairo.
