BusinessGhana News: Stars depart Kenya Thursday evening for Uganda 'do-or-die

The Black Stars' chances of qualifying were hit badly on Saturday, after they were held to a goalless draw against Uganda in Kampala.

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

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is apparently spearheading the fight for justice after South African referee Daniel Bennett denied the Black Stars a match victor against Uganda in 2018 World Cup qualifying on Saturday.

Because apart from this decision, he also made some very contentious decisions like not awarding a penalty to Ghana after winger, Frank Acheampong was shoved off the ball in the Ugandan goal area.

Many Ghanaians have taken to social media to vent their anger over the decision although the goal will not significantly affect the Black Stars' chances of qualifying for the World Cup.
