Cape Town - Owen da Gama has given Riyaad Norodien his first start at the Under-23 AFCON tournament as Amaglug-glug prepare to face Algeria.

Norodien was the only change to the starting XI that beat Tunisia 1-0 in their last group stage fixture.

The Ajax Cape Town midfielder replaces Siphelele Ntshangase and will hope to inflict fear into the Desert Foxes.

South Africa and Algeria go head-to-head at the Stade Leopold Senghor in Dakar, Senegal on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 20:30 (SA time).

Starting XI

Jody February (GK), Kwanda Mngonyama, Rivaldo Coetzee, Tebogo Moerane, Abbubaker Mobara, Keagan Dolly (captain), Phumlani Ntshangase, Menzi Masuku, Deolin Mekoa, Riyaad Norodien, Gift Motupa
