Starting XI: Ghana v Cape Verde

2013 AFCON Quarter-Final

Teams: Ghana v Cape Verde

Date: 2 February 2013

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

The Black Stars of Ghana will be hoping to march into the semi-finals of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations when they take on surprise package Cape Verde on Saturday.

The Blue Sharks have had a stunning debut tournament so far, having held hosts South Africa in their opening clash before containing Morocco and Angola.

Ghana's star forward Asamoah Gyan may have had a slow start to their campaign but showed quality in their other matches.

Ghana have been boosted by the fact that Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Mubarak Wakaso and Anthony Annan all returned to training this week, while Cape Verde have no reported injury concerns.

The Black Stars will give the minnows respect, according to head coach James Kwesi Appiah, who says that the Blue Sharks will have nothing to lose coming into the game.

Standard Bank Key Player: Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is heavily relied upon upfront and they will be hoping that he is at his devastating best as they look to grab a semi-final spot.

This is how they line up:

Ghana: Abul-Fatawu Dauda, John Pantsil, Christian Atsu, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu,Albert Danquah-Adomah, Mohammed Rabiu, Isaac Vorsah, Kwadwo Asamoah, John Boye, Harrison Afful, Asamoah Gyan.

Cape Verde: Josimar Dias, Fernando Varela, Elvis Macedo, Fernando Neves (capt), Antonio Varela, Heldon Ramos, Julio Tavares, Marco Soares, Nivaldo Santos, Ryan Mendes, Carlos Tavares.
