Black Meteors coach Ibrahim Tanko has named his starting XI to take on Cote d'Ivoire in the semi-final clash at the ongoing U-23 AFCON.

The gaffer has maintained the same line up he used in Ghana's 2-0 win over Mali, which means there is no place for Kwabena Owusu despite his goals that propelled the team to the Semi-finals.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 2:00 pm at the Cairo International Stadium.

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Kwame Baah starts between the sticks, with Kingsley Fobi and Edward Sarpong on the right and left flanks. 

Zakaria Fuseini will partner Habib Mohammed as center backs for the clash. In midfield, Emmanuel Lomtey and Michael Agbekpornu will be shielding the defense while Evans Mensah and Evans Mensah will playing on the flanks.
Samuel Obeng and Yeboah are leading the attack for the Black Metors.
