The Black Satellites have a second round date with the Fennec Foxes in the race to Niger 2019

Ghana will face Algeria in the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations.

The identity of the Black Satellites' opponents was revealed on Saturday following the first round exchange between Algeria and Tunisia

After two legs, the Fennec Foxes emerged 5-2 victorious on aggregate, having won the home and away encounters 3-1 and 2-1 respectively. 

Ghana, who drew a bye in the first round, will, thus, face off against the Algerians in the second round in May.

The two-time champions are set to travel for the first leg during the weekend of May 11-13, before hosting the return fixture a week later. 

The winner will set up a date with Gambia/Benin in the third and final round slated for July.

Seven teams are expected to join hosts Niger for the final championship.

The Satellite will be hoping to make a return to the U-20 Afcon after failing to qualify for the last edition in 2017.

At their last appearance in Senegal in 2015, the side finished third behind winners Nigeria and the hosts.

The 2019 tournament will serve as qualifiers for the Fifa Under-20 World Cup later next year.
