Ghana Under-20 striker Francis Narh has been ruled out of Friday’s final Group A game at the African Youth Championship against hosts Algeria on Friday afternoon.
Baba Mensah has replaced suspended captain Lawrence Lartey, Moses Odjer start ahead of Clifford Aboagye while Kennedy Ashia come in for unfit striker Narh.
Asante Kotoko midfielder Michael Anaba has been maintained in the starting role and expected to shake off the early disappointing displays in the tournament.
