9 years ago

Jonas Eriksson has been selected to referee Ghana's World Cup opener in Natal against the United States.

FIFA announced its referee selections on Saturday for the Group G match on Monday at the Estadio das Dunas.

The Swede, Eriksson, 40, officiated two matches at UEFA EURO 2012 and the second leg of the CONMEBOL/AFC play-off between Uruguay and Jordan in November 2013.

He is a full-time referee and will be assisted by fellow nationals Mathias Klasenius and Daniel Warnmark.

Tahiti's Norbert Hauata is the fourth official.
