Ghana's World Cup hopes all but over after draw in Uganda

"The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has lodged a protest with FIFA over the performance of referee Daniel Bennett and his assistants Eldrick Adelaide and Steve Marie during the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Uganda on Saturday", the statement reads.

The senior national team will play group leaders Egypt in their final qualifying match on November with the Black Stars having a very slim chance of qualifying ahead of the Pharoahs. Earlier in the week, their forward, Geoffrey Sserunkuma, sent a clear signal to the Black Stars to brace themselves for a defeat. Look, I think that it will be hard for Ghana to qualify because Egypt will play Congo at home and we know that the Egyptians have a good team and won't let this chance slide.

The Stars were counting on a positive result by picking the three maximum points, at stake enhance their chances of qualifying for the biggest football festival next year, but this fizzled out after the scorelles draw, with the East Africans. But what I have been telling the Black Stars is that it is time for pride.

Egypt were given a golden chance to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation with a match to spare after Uganda and Ghana played out a goalless draw in Kampala on Saturday. This is after Appiah left out Jordan and Andre Ayew. "We will give it our all".

Ghana, in third on six points, need Egypt to lose against Congo, Uganda to fail to beat the Red Devils next month, and to beat the Pharaohs in their final qualifier to reach a fourth consecutive World Cup.
