RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- The United States' World Cup opener against Ghana in Natal will be refereed by Jonas Eriksson of Sweden.
FIFA announced its referee selections on Saturday for three matches on Monday.
Eriksson is a full-time referee who worked two matches at the 2012 European Championship.
Pellegrini later apologized and was given a two-match sideline ban by UEFA.
