The Black Stars have seen their chances of qualifying for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation fade after a goalless draw against Uganda in Kampala on Saturday.

Ghana is now third in Group E with five points but seems to be a team that has potential to fight for that World Cup spot.

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.

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has urged the Ghana Football Association to protest the stars' drawn game with the Cranes of Uganda.

Okwi was a livewire down the right for the Cranes asking a number of questions of the Ghanaian defence.

Twum, was voted the Most Valuable Player in the just ended WAFU Cup of Nations and believes it is time for him to prove his worth among Ghana's topmost players. Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey has been a vital player for the Western African side with four goals in the tournament so far.

Another key moment saw Daniel Amartey's headed goal from a free-kick ruled out for offside, although replays suggested that strike also should have stood.

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

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

The Black Stars had the ball in the net again with seconds to play but the goal was ruled out, wrongly again, for offside sparking a fracas after the final which came nearly immediately after.
