Accra: Kevin-Prince Boateng will miss Ghana`s 2014 World Cup play-off first leg match with Egypt due to a knee injury.

The 26-year-old picked up the injury in Schalke`s 4-1 league victory over Augsburg in the German Bundesliga.

The match will be played on Oct 15. The winners of the play-off qualify for the finals in Brazil next year.

Boateng also missed Ghana`s final World Cup group match against Zambia last month because of an injury he suffered in training.

It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
