The powerful centre back missed the 1-0 victory against Steve Bruce's side at St James' Park and he has been experiencing some pain in his thigh.
However, the Frenchman is keen to play in Les Bleus' clash on Wednesday as it is an important step in Raymond Domenech's World Cup warm-up plans.
"I missed out on that match after having an agreement with my coach [Graeme Souness]," explained Boumsong. "Due to left thigh pain and a personal matter.
"But I am keen to play with the French team if the coach calls me."
The match against Costa Rica takes place in Martinique.
