Uganda Cranes dream of making it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russian Federation hangs in balance after settling to goalless draw with Ghana today evening at the Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.

Ghana Football Association said it had written to FIFA about the performance of South African referee Daniel Bennett and his assistants, Eldrick Adelaide and Steve Marie, both of the Seychelles.

For Ghana, a win will see them leapfrog Uganda in second with 8 points but their chances will depend on Egypt losing to Congo Brazzaville in Alexandria.

The GFA filed the protest after South African referee Daniel Bennett ruled out Raphael Dwamena's 93rd minute goal for offside as the match ended in a 0-0 draw.

The goalless stalemate at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala has visibly kicked Ghana out of the running for Russian Federation 2018.

Ghana's coach Kwesi Appiah introduction of two strikers Patrick Twumasi and Dwamena was not enough to fetch the desperate Stars the needed victory to keep their world cup dreams on hold.

Only the top team qualify for the World Cup, a place now occupied by Egypt.

Farouk Miya blasted wide from a free kick after six minutes, while Okwi's cross cross after 17 minutes was also punched out of danger by Ghana's goalkeeper Richard Ofori.

The Egyptians can guarantee their place at the finals in Russian Federation if they beat Congo, who are bottom, later today. Each group victor will qualify for Russian Federation considering Africa only has 5 teams in the final round.
