Ghana vs Niger: One change to Starlets lineup in R16 clash

Ghana coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has made one change to the Black Starlets lineup as they face Niger in an U-17 World Cup Round of 16 clash Wednesday morning.

Emmanuel Toku has replaced winger Sadiq Ibrahim who is suspended for card accumulation.

Coach Fabin has decided to keep faith with the quartet of Gabriel Leveh, Bismark Terry Owusu, Edmund Arko-Mensah and Ibrahim Sulley who made their first start and excelled in the 4-0 thumping of tournament hosts India.

Goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad will have usual suspects Yakubu, Mensah, Alhassan and Terry Owusu filling the defensive positions while Leveh and Sulley join Isaac Gyamfi in midfield.

Captain Eric Ayiah will lead the lines with Toku and Arkoh-Mensah flanking him.
