Black Starlets Assistant Coach Nana Kweku Agyemang has made three changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Burkina Faso in the semi-finals of the WAFU Under-17 Championship, to face Nigeria in the 3rd place playoff.

Forward Benjamin Hanson replaces Godfred Sarpong in attack while Ernest Ofori starts ahead of Theophilus Ayamga who picked a knock in the semi-finals.

Prince Charles Amoah will also start ahead of Izdeen Mohammed who suffered a knock in the game against Burkina Faso.

Nana Agyemang has maintained nine (8) of the players who started the game against Burkina Faso in his quest to scale over Nigeria in the 3rd place playoff.

The Black Starlets take on the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria in the 3rd place playoff to determine who goes home with the bronze medal of the competition.

Nana Agyemang has kept faith with shot stopper, Michael Armah, who will be in goal this afternoon against Nigeria with an unaltered Bilal Adjevi, Prince Charles Amoah, Harve Gbafa and Hamza Iddrisu.

Ernest Ofori, however, replaces Ayamga who picked a knock against Burkina Faso but playmaker Kagawa and Nortey maintained their roles.

Skipper Tsivanyo and speedster Narbi play on the right and left side of midfield respectively while Hanson leads the attack for the Black Starlets.

Admission to the match remains free of charge but for the VIP stands.
