Both teams are on the brink of elimination from qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation as they both seek a win.

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.

The 94th minute of the game came with some great news to Asamoah's teammates: Dwamena scored the most awaited goal but.it was refused by the referee, Daniel Bennett.

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.

"We have to protest. this no "fa ma Nyame" matter. i'm so furious", Gyan tweeted after the game.

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


Ghana may not have qualified even if they had won as win for Egypt in their game against Congo on Sunday at home will see them qualify with a game to spare but if that was referee Bennett's reason, then he needs to punished.

The GFA says it filed the protest with Federation Internationale de Football Association immediately after the 0-0 draw in Kampala.

"Mr Bennett and (his) assistants denied Ghana a flawless goal in the 93rd minute with television replays showing that it was a ideal goal".

The Black Stars had two goals disallowed for offside in either half with the last gasp goal appearing legit and also had an appeal for a penalty turned down when Frank Acheampong went down under challenge by Nicholas Wadada.

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.
