Appiah has made four changes to the team that drew 0-0 with Cameroon, with Joseph Aidoo, Kwabena Owusu, Samuel Owusu and John Boye all starting.

John Boye, who missed Cameroon game due to suspension, has replaced suspended Kassim Nuhu.

Kwadwo Asamoah has been dropped to the bench after delivering a below-par performance.

The seven players to keep their place are Richard Ofori, Baba Rahman, Andy Yiadom Mubarak Wakaso, Thomas Partey, Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew.

Ghana Line-up: Richard Ofori; Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman, John Boye, Joseph Aidoo, Mubarak Wakaso, Thomas Partey; Samuel Owusu, Kwabena Owusu, Jordan Ayew, Andre Ayew.
