Kevin-Prince ready for Ghana duty

Kevin-Prince Boateng is primed to play a part in Ghana’s World Cup play-off against Egypt after arriving at the team’s camp in Turkey, Tuesday evening.

The Black Stars are preparing for next week’s qualifier against Egypt in the Turkish capital, Istanbul.

The Schalke player missed Tuesday afternoon’s training session but joined his colleagues at their hotel before 18:00 GMT (19:00 GMT in Turkey).

Kevin-Prince missed the first league in Kumasi due to injury but has given coach Kwesi Appiah a boost as he prepares his team for the November 19 return leg in Cairo.

Hours before Boateng arrived, goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey had settled in camp after also missing the first training session.

The arrival of Michael Essien and Awal Mohammed will hand coach Appiah a full-house as he now has 22 members of his squad available in Turkey.

Ghana lead the tie 6-1 from the first leg in Kumasi on 15 October. The aggregate winner qualifies for next year’s finals in Brazil.
