Uganda vs Ghana live stream online: 2018 World Cup CAF qualifer

Uganda and Ghana both saw their hopes of World Cup qualification go up in smoke in Kampala as the sides played out a 0-0 draw that handed Egypt the chance to go through as group winners on Sunday when the Pharoahs host already eliminated Congo in Alexandria. 

The game in the Mandela National Stadium in the Ugandan capital will be chiefly remembered for an incident in the 94th minute - not least because it produced only a handful of shots and none that meaningfully tested either keeper in the 93 minutes that preceded it. Substitute Raphael Dwamena had the ball in the back of Denis Onyango's net after a rebound and wheeled away in celebration, only for his smiles to turn to disbelief as the referee ruled it out for offside. 

Replays showed that the FC Zurich striker started his run from a legal position before the initial shot and he was shadowed by Nicholas Wadada from the edge of the area. The Ghana bench exploded in fury and the match official blew for full time immediately after the ruled out strike.

In truth, it would have been a fair result for the Black Stars, who showed more ambition than the home side in a game light on chances in no small part due to a pitch that played like the top deck of a cruise ship, every through ball zipping away from its pursuer. 

Thomas Partey also hit the target earlier in the but that goal was also ruled out for offside, in a more clear cut case. 

In the end, the result suits neither side with Egypt now firmly in the driving seat for a ticket to Russia, barring any miracles on the part of Congo, who have so far only picked up one point in qualifying.
