Starting XI: Ghana v Libya

CAF African Nations Championship


Teams: Ghana v Libya

Date: 17 January 2013

Venue: Free State Stadium

Ghana and Libya will be hoping to pick up a victory in Friday’s African Nations Championship clash at Free State Stadium to top Group C, and virtually assure their place in the quarter-finals after winning their opening group games.

Maxwell Konadu’s men scraped through to a 1-0 win over Congo in their opening fixture thanks to a fortunate deflected first-half goal by Theophilus Anobaahand and will be hoping for an improved performance from the Black Stars.

Libya’s Spanish coach Javier Clemente oversaw his men comfortably dispatch Ethiopia 2-0 in their opener thanks to goals Elmutasem Abushnaf and Abdelsalam Omar and the Mexican will hope that the Mediterranean Knights can put in a similar performance.

The winner of this group will face the second placed team in Group D, making qualification through to the semi-finals that much easier.

Here is how they line up:

Ghana XI: Stephen Adams, Godfred Saka, Tijani Joshua, Adusei Kwabena, Nuru Sulley, Michael Akuffu, Jordan Opoku, Theophilus Anorba, Richard Mpong, Yahaya Mohammed, Sule Mohammed

Libya XI: Nashnoush; Fetori, El Trbi, Salama, Sabbou; El Hadi, Saleh, El Gadi, El Houni; Abushnaf, Al Ghanodi
