Black Satellites are set to face the toughest match in the tournament against the hot favorites Nigeria in the semi-final of the African U-20 Championship in Senegal.
Despite losing to Mali in the last group game by a narrow margin of 1-0, both teams go through to the knockout stage as Mali topped the group with a maximum 9 points.
Black Satellites coach Sellas Tetteh makes four changes in the squad before the match against Mali.
The only goal in the game was scored by the captain of Mali Ichaka Diara, when he headed home a corner kick midway in the 18th minute of play.
Ghana will face Nigeria in the first semi-final after Nigeria top the group with 7 points (2 wins and a draw) on 18th March, while Group B leader Mali will face second place Group A side and hosts Senegal in the second semi-final on 19th March, 2015.
The hosts make it to the last four with a hard fought victory against Congo, beating them 4-3, while Nigeria plays a 2-2 draw against the Ivory Coast.
