    WORLD CUP LIVE: GHANA V USA

    Probable Lineups:

    Ghana (4-2-3-1): Duada, Afful, Mensah, Boye, Asamoah, Rabiu, Muntari, Atsu, Boateng, Ayew, Gyan

    Ghana could field a very similar team to the one that defeated South Korea 4-0 in their recent friendly meaning Michael Essien and Emmanuel Badu could be left out for the match. With the recent injury to Majeed Waris, Christain Atsu looks to be the one who replaces him in attacking midfield. Hat-trick hero Jordan Ayew who scored three against South Korea could also be in contention for Waris, who remains a doubt after picking up a knock.

    USA (4-4-1-1): Howard, Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley, Zusi, Jones, Bradley, Davis, Dempsey, Altitore

    USA go into their first match of the World Cup will a fully fit squad as Johnson and Beasley looks to threaten down the defensive flanks. Michael Bradley could be the creative spark in the middle of the park while Clint Dempsey serves as a deep lying forward to lone striker Jozy Altidore. Dempsey is the one to watch for USA as the player has the ability to cause Ghana a few problems when he runs into the opponent box.
