  • Uganda takes on Ghana Tomorrow

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 was emboldened by FIFA's unprecedented decision last month to order a South Africa-Senegal qualifier from 2016 to be replaced because of match-fixing by the referee.

The Uganda Cranes will tomorrow take on the Black stars of Ghana in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Group E game at Namboole stadium.

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is apparently spearheading the fight for justice after South African referee Daniel Bennett denied the Black Stars a match victor against Uganda in 2018 World Cup qualifying on Saturday.

"Referee Daniel Bennett just told the Ghana team why he disallowed the goal".

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.

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

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

"These and several other decisions by the match officials have left the GFA with no option than to ask Federation Internationale de Football Association to examine their performances", the release said. "The referee also denied Ghana a penalty earlier in the second-half when Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong was brought down in the box", the statement added.

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.
