Essien, Boateng out of Ghana lineup against US

NATAL, Brazil (AP) -- World Cup veterans Michael Essien and Kevin- Prince Boateng were left out of coach Kwesi Appiah's starting lineup for their World Cup opening match Monday night against the United States.
Asamoah Gyan was set to lead Ghana as it tries to beat the U.S. for the third consecutive World Cup. Gyan scored the winning goal that sent the Americans home from South Africa in 2010.

According to a lineup released by the Ghana Football Association, there were four changes from the starting 11 that beat South Korea 4-0 in an warm-up game last week in Florida. Adam Kwarasey replaced Fatawu Dauda in goal, and Daniel Opare, Christian Atsu and Jordan Ayew were in for Boateng, injured forward Majeed Waris and defender Harrison Afful.

The U.S. lineup has not yet been formally announced.
