Appiah on bench in Ghana-Serbia WCup game
Stephen Appiah was on the bench when Ghana announced its lineup
to face Serbia in the opening Group D game Sunday.
The 29-year-old midfielder lost out as the Ghanians fielded an
adventurous 4-3-3 formation at Loftus Versfeld. Sulley Muntari was
left out as he continues to recover from a left thigh injury.
There were no big surprises in the Serbia lineup, with the
2.03-meter (6-foot-8) Nikola Zigic leading the attack.
Serbia: Vladimir Stojkovic, Aleksandar Kolarov, Nemanja Vidic,
Branislav Ivanovic, Marko Pantelic, Dejan Stankovic, Aleksandar
Lukovic, Milan Jovanovic, Nikola Zigic, Milos Krasic.
Ghana: Richard Kingson, Hans Adu Sarpei, John Pantsil, John
Mensah, Isaac Vorsah, Anthony Annan, Kwadwo Asamoah, Dede Ayew,
Asamoah Gyan, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Prince Tagoe.
