Egypt's Chances of Passing Group Qualifications Improves after Uganda and Ghana Draw

09 October 2017

Ghana and Uganda drew 0-0 in Uganda on Saturday, hurting Ghana's chances of qualifying for the World Cup next year in Russian Federation.

In its protest to FIFA, which was filed immediately after Ghana's goalless game played in Kampala on Saturday, the GFA is asking the world football governing body to consider the possibility of a replay in order to serve the ends of justice without fear or favor.

They got the goal in the final seconds courtesy of Raphael Dwamena but to the surprise of the Black Stars bench, referee Benett disallowed it.

Ghana, who reached the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, are now relying on results going their way if they are to book their ticket to Russian Federation.

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

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

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.

Cranes have to pray that Egypt draws or is beaten by Congo Brazzaville to keep their dreams alive.

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