Black Stars draw against Cranes in World Cup qualifier

The Ghana FA, on Saturday night, went Gyan's way, announcing that an official protest has been lodged at Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Astute football commentator Ray Hudson has descended heavily on referee Daniel Bennett for his woeful performance in Ghana's penultimate World Cup qualifier against Uganda in Kampala on Saturday.

However, with 8 points from five outings, their campaign could be all over if Group E leaders Egypt defeat Congo on Sunday.

Ghana's striker Raphael Dwamena expressed his disappointment following his canceled goal in Saturday's 0-0 at Uganda in the fifth fixture of the World Cup qualifier.

The game which officially ended Ghana's chance of qualifying for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation has been marred with controversies over officiating.


The GFA were furious with the conduct of the officials and said television replays had shown it was a "perfect goal".

However, if the Black Stars win and Egypt defeat Congo in the other group game, the Pharaohs will automatically qualify for the first time since 1990 with a game to spare. "The referee also denied Ghana a penalty earlier in the second-half when Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong was brought down in the box", the statement added.

Ghana had two goals disallowed for offside by Bennett of South Africa and assistant referees Eldrick Adelaide and Steve Marie, both of Seychelles.

The Eastern African side is only two points back of Egypt but only two points ahead of Ghana, making this game crucial for both teams.
