Ghana on verge of failing to qualify for 2018 after Uganda draw

Ghana face Uganda in their next 2018 World Cup qualifier in Namboole on Saturday and Amartey will also captain the side for their friendly clash against Saudi Arabia that follows next week.

Gyan, who says he is "furious" over the development is asking the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to formally protest the action of the referee.

The Kayserispor forward sat out the away clash due to injury, but was left incensed after Raphael Dwamena's injury-time goal from a rebound was ruled out for offside.

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

Egypt has a golden opportunity to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation, the first time since the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

"How on earth can this goal be disallowed?"

Joe Girardi says he 'screwed up' by not challenging HBP call
Gary Sanchez motioned to the Yankee dugout for them to call for review the play, but Girardi elected not to challenge the call. It was Kluber's third straight start on short rest, and he was out of gas, giving up four runs in four innings.

If FIFA accept Ghana's request, it may have ramifications for Egypt as a Uganda win will mean that Egypt cannot secure qualification against Congo and will have to do the business away at Ghana in November.

Ghana's heartbreak could be confirmed later on Saturday when Egypt take on Congo.

"The GFA filed the protest to football's world governing body, FIFA, immediately after the match at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala", read a statement on the official GFA website. Despite showing a great performance during the game, Ghana players were not able to score a single goal.

Indeed, while both Uganda and Ghana could yet qualify for the World Cup, Egypt would top Group E - eliminating the other two - if they beat Congo-Brazzaville at home on Sunday.

First of all, a clear penalty in the early stages of the second half was not awarded after Frank Acheampong was impeded in the box by rushing Cranes defender.
