Atsu starts against Niger as Ghana makes one change

Christian Atsu is handed his second start at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana's final Group B match against Niger on Monday.

The midfielder is just the only change for coach Kwesi Appiah from the previous game as the Black Stars push for qualification to the quarter-finals.

Atsu replaces the suspended Mubarak Wakaso for the game which will kick off at 19:00 (17:00GMT) at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

A win for the Black Stars will see them finish top in the group and extend their stay in Port Elizabeth for the quarter-finals.

Ghana line up:

Goal Keeper
Fatau Dauda


John Paintsil, Harrison Afful, John Boye, Isaac Vorsah.


Rabiu Mohammed, Albert Adomah, Agyemang Badu, Christian Atsu, Kwadwo Asamoah.

Asamoah Gyan
