Starting XI: Ghana v Algeria

Africa Cup of Nations - Group C
 
Teams: Ghana v Algeria
 
Date: 23 January 2015
 
Venue: Estadio de Mongomo
 
Ghana will be looking to bounce back from their opening Afcon 2015 loss when they lock horns with Algeria on Friday evening.
 
 
A stoppage time strike from Moussa Sow condemned the Black Stars to a 2-1 defeat to Senegal in their opening group C clash, while the team's captain Asamoah Gyan missed the clash through illness.
 
However, Gyan has recovered from a mild case of Malaria and has been restored to the Black Stars' line-up.
 
Algeria, meanwhile, started their campaign with a 3-1 win over South Africa and will secure a spot in the next round with a win over Avram Grant's men.
 
All three previous Afcon clashes between these two sides came in the 1980s, with each side winning once.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Ghana: Brimah, Afful, Rahman, Amartey, Mensah, Acquah, A. Ayew, Badu, Atsu, Gyan, J. Ayew
 
Algeria: M'Bolhi, Mandi, Bougherra, Medjani, Ghoulam, Lacen, Taider, Bentaleb, Brahimi, Feghouli, Belfodil
 
Ghana's Afcon game against Algeria will be televised live on SuperSport 4 on 23 January at 18h00.
