Read Time:54 Second

Algeria will be handed a stiff test this afternoon at the Accra Sports Stadium as Black Meteors gaffer Ibrahim Tanko names Bernard Terkpetey and Dauda Mohammed as his lead attackers for the U23 AFCON Qualifier.

The side which will be skippered by Yaw Yeboah will have only one home-based player in the starting line up as Ghana look to record a convincing win ahead of the return leg.

Kingsley Fobi will start from the right side of the Ghana defence while Gideon Mensah handle the left back position with Zakaria Fuseini and Nicholas Opoku playing at the heart of defence.

Majeed Ashmeru will be starting in a defensive midfield role for the side as Osman Bukari, Joseph Paintsil and Yaw Yeboah form a solid midfield set up.
