Ghana international, Kevin-Prince Boateng has wished the Blacks Stars of Ghana the best of luck, ahead of their epic clash with Egypt, in the first leg of the final round of World Cup qualifier scheduled for Brazil 2014.
The Black Stars will host the Pharaohs of Egypt at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Tuesday, 1600GMT, before a reverse trip to Cairo in a month's time.
Kevin-Prince Boateng will not feature for Ghana due to an injury suffered in his last Bundesliga game against Augsburg where he opened the scoresheet from a spot-kick, but was soon withdrawn from the match due to an injury suffered in the course of the game.
This occurred prior to the international break when he had been enlisted as part of the Ghana squad to face Egypt. The injury blow extends the period when KP Boateng will make a return to the Stars, after his self-imposed temporary retirement was rescinded to a time; nobody knows.
However, the FC Schalke 04 forward has publicly declared via his twitter handle, his support to the Black Stars in his absence: "I wish the Ghana Blackstars all the best of luck for the game against Egypt! Very sorry I can't be there and help... #blackstars #shining".[sic]
