Goalless draw between Ghana, Uganda sends Egypt closer to World Cup

The Stars were counting on a positive result by picking the three maximum points, at stake enhance their chances of qualifying for the biggest football festival next year, but this fizzled out after the scorelles draw, with the East Africans.

"The GFA filed the protest to football's world governing body, FIFA, immediately after the match at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala".

Egypt are one win away from booking their ticket to the 2018 Russia World Cup thanks to a goalless draw between Uganda and Ghana. "We will give it our all".

Striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom struck powerfully from 20 yards out and his effort came off the chin of goalkeeper Denis Onyango.

In Group E, Egypt leads the group with 9 points followed by Uganda with 7 points and Ghana lies in the third position with 5 points and Congo is last in the group with 1 point.

Many Ghanaians have expressed regret over the quality of officiating with many asking for a replay of the game.

If the performance displayed by the Cranes during the first leg match is anything to go by, then the Stars could be in for another tough encounter as the vociferous and intimidating partisan fans in Kampala could play a role in ensuring they pick the maximum points.

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.

With that number, with one party remaining, Egypt has been confirmed to be the group victor and secure a ticket to the 2018 World Cup finals.
