Boateng back for Ghana World Cup tie against Egypt

Published: Updated:

Kevin-Prince Boateng returned to the Ghana team for this month's World Cup play-off against Egypt after being named in a 24-man squad on Tuesday.

Coach Kwesi Appiah has also brought back striker Dominic Adiyah and back-up goalkeeper Daniel Agyei and restored fullback Harrison Afful who missed the 6-1 first leg win in Kumasi through suspension, the Ghana Football Association said.

Ghana take their overwhelming lead to Cairo for the second leg on Nov. 19 with the aggregate winner advancing to the next year's finals in Brazil.

Schalke's Boateng was injured for the first leg.

Veteran goalkeeper Richard Kingson, defender Baba Abdul Rahman, striker Mahatma Otoo and Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong have been dropped from the first leg squad.

Russia says Iran must be invited to the proposed Syria peace talks in Geneva.
