Ghana Black Stars to crush the Uganda Cranes?

Kawowo Sports | DAVID ISABIRYEVincent Atinga who plays for Hearts Of Oak in Ghana wheels his luggage

Despite the pressure from the Ugandans, it was Ghana who nearly took the lead through Thomas Partey, who had scored four times in his last two games for Ghana.

Ghana travelled to the Mandela National Stadium to face Uganda on an awfully bumpy pitch, with both teams still holding hopes to qualify to Moscow.

Ghana and Uganda played out a dour goalless draw in Kampala on Saturday which dents the pair's hopes of World Cup qualification and leaves Egypt within one win of a place in Russian Federation next year.

Egypt need only one point from their final two games to reach the finals, and ensure Ghana miss out for the first time since 2002.

After Saturday's match result, the Black Stars are all but out of the race to Russian Federation 2018 as Egypt will secure the sole Group E ticket should the Pharaohs account for bottom-placed Congo on Sunday.

It's not the first time the Trump administration has broken with its predecessor on how to interpret Title VII . Several LGBTQ civil rights groups blasted Sessions' directive.

Only seconds later, Thomas Partey had a clear-cut chance for Ghana but his shot ended up in the side net.

The Black Stars had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside when Daniel Amartey, who captained the side, headed home from a free-kick, only for the linesman's flag to go up.

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

The spilled ball fell onto the patch of on-rushing Raphael Dwamena who tucked home from close range but the FC Zurich ace was shockingly flagged offside.

The statement specifically cites a penalty shout ignored in the second half when Frank Acheampong was brought down in the box, to the dismay of the away bench.
