Uganda Cranes dash Ghanaian hopes

Luckily, Raphael Dwamena scored in the fourth minute of injury time.

Dropping the two points sees the Black Stars on the brink of elimination in their quest to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The goalless draw between Ghana and Uganda gave Group E leaders Egypt a golden chance to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation with a match to spare.

Captain of the Black Stars team, Asamoah Gyan has expressed his frustration at the outcome of the match, demanding that a protest against the final score be made.

"How on earth can this goal be disallowed?" He told the Ghanaian media: "I feel frustrated".




Cranes skipper Denis Onyango has complained that the nation's authorities are not serious about football after their draw with Ghana on Saturday.

Egypt, who face the bottom of the pile Congo in the group's other game, are top of the table with nine points from four outings.

"The GFA filed the protest to football's world governing body, FIFA, immediately after the match at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala". Despite showing a great performance during the game, Ghana players were not able to score a single goal. "The referee also denied Ghana a penalty earlier in the second-half when Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong was brought down in the box", stated the protest that URN has seen.

A win for Ghana would have left them one point behind Egypt going into the final game, although if Egypt win against Congo on Sunday then the result of the Black Stars' game will become irrelevant as Egypt will be mathematically unreachable.
