Boateng ended a two-year international exile to report for Black Stars duty last month, but did not play in the first leg of their World Cup decider with Egypt after suffering a leg injury.
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has stuck by that decision to recall the former AC Milan maestro, insisting that he deserves a second chance to be included as the Black Stars look to book their place in Brazil next summer.
Appiah told All Sports: "We invited Kevin for the Zambia game and he complained of pains in the knee so he could not play.
"He could not turn up for Egypt too because he says was injured. I have always believed Ghana needs its best players and Kevin being Ghanaian is one of them.
"I personally believe he has to be given another chance but as to whether he will come or not is another case."
The Black Stars managed to build a commanding lead over Egypt in the first leg despite Boateng's absence, winning 6-1 in Kumasi ahead of the return match in Cairo on November 19.
