Ghana appeals to Federation Internationale de Football Association for Uganda rematch

Ghana appeals to Federation Internationale de Football Association for Uganda rematch

The linesman's flag denied the Black Stars a late victor in the 93rd minute after Raphael Dwamena hit the back of the Ugandan net from a rebound off the goalkeeper.

Ghana may not be one of Africa's five representatives at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Uganda Cranes dream of making it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russian Federation hangs in balance after settling to goalless draw with Ghana today evening at the Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.

The game ended goalless at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole but Ghana felt hard done by after what seemed like a legit goal in the last minute of added time was disallowed for offside by South African referee, Daniel Bennett.

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.

According to him, "how on earth can this goal be disallowed".

In an interview with Kicker magazine, Heynckes said he was "not making a comeback, it's a service for a friend". Two German coaches are believed to be in the running to manage Bayern in the long-term.

The Ghana FA, on Saturday night, went Gyan's way, announcing that an official protest has been lodged at Federation Internationale de Football Association. Despite showing a great performance during the game, Ghana players were not able to score a single goal.

"We failed to beat Ghana on Saturday because the pitch was not to our advantage as hosts", Onyango told KweséESPN.

"The GFA respectfully asked Federation Internationale de Football Association to consider the possibility of a replay in order to serve the ends of justice without fear or favour,"it added".

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.

For Ghana, a win will see them leapfrog Uganda in second with 8 points but their chances will depend on Egypt losing to Congo Brazzaville in Alexandria.
