BATA, Equatorial Guinea — Ghana says Jordan Ayew will start against Zambia in the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations in place of Sulley Muntari.

Ghana coach Goran Stevanovich has made three changes from the starting lineup that beat Tunisia 2-1 in extra time in the quarterfinals.

Defender Lee Addy will make his first start of the tournament in place of Masahudu Alhassan, while Derek Boateng comes in for the injured Emmanuel Agyemang Badu. Jordan Ayew will join brother Andre in the starting lineup.

Striker Asamoah Gyan and defender John Mensah will also start after shrugging off injury doubts.
