Black Stars draw against Cranes in World Cup qualifier

Black Stars draw against Cranes in World Cup qualifier

Egypt are one win away from booking their ticket to the 2018 Russia World Cup thanks to a goalless draw between Uganda and Ghana.

The 22-year-old has had a slow start to the new Premier League season, making one appearance and lasting only nine minutes in City's opening day defeat to Arsenal.

Ghana is therefore praying for a win against Uganda, and for Congo to do the unthinkable by upsetting Egypt or at least picking a point.

Appiah handed an global debut to Malmo star Kingsley Sarfo while Richmond Boakye-Yiadom who's been in stunning form for SuperLiga team Red Star Belgrade, started up front with captain Asamoah Gyan out with an injury.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has asked FIFA to consider replaying the match and also sanction the match officials.

Uganda should have taken the lead as a fantastic cross found the head of Nsibambi who headed wide from about five yards out.

The Stars could have gone home with the three maximum points, after Richmond Boakye-Yiadom's long range bounced off keeper Dennis Onyango for Raphael Dwamena to tap in, but this was ruled offside by South African referee Bennet Daniel Frazier in the dying embers of the game.

Both sides created some decent chances, but were unable to convert them, leaving the game barren at the end of the 90 minutes.

"Mr Bennett and assistants denied Ghana a ideal goal in the 93rd minute with television replays showing that it was a flawless goal". It will all be over should Ghana and Egypt win their penultimate games as that brings Ghana to eight points and Egypt, whom the play in the last round of matches, to 12 points.
