Ati-Zigi Replaced As C.K. Akonnor Makes Five Changes To Starting Line-up To Face Qatar

Ghana coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor has made five changes to the starting line up to face Qatar in an international friendly on Monday. 

Goalkeeper Lawrence Ati-Zigi has been replaced by unattached goalie Razak Abelora, with Benson Annang making his debut on the right flank.

Joseph Aidoo starts in place of the injured Nicholas Opoku with Baba Iddrisu starting in midfielder as Alexander Djiku is shifted to defence.

Gideon Mensah maintains his position on the left despite his struggles in the game against Mali.

Al Fayha winger Samuel Owusu makes his way into the team after Eugene Ansah failed to impress on his debut.

Thomas Partey, captain Andre Ayew and Tarique Fosu line up in the middle with Jordan Ayew spearheading the attack.

The Black Stars will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointing defeat to Mali on Friday with a better performance against the Asian champions.

The game is part of preparations for next months AFCON qualifiers against Sudan.
