Ghana lodge protest with Fifa after 0-0 draw in Uganda


Uganda and Ghana failed to score in their penultimate match of Group E

A controversial end to Uganda’s 0-0 draw at home to Ghana in Group E of World Cup qualifying led to the Black Stars lodging a protest with Fifa over refereeing decisions during the match.

Ghana had a goal from Raphael Dwamena ruled out for offside in stoppage time, and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced it had launched an official protest.

“The GFA filed the protest to Fifa, immediately after the match at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala,” Ghana’s FA statement said.
