- The Black Stars of Ghana's hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup dealt a blow
- The Stars were held to 1-1 draw at their back yard in the 2018 World Cup qualifier
The Black Stars of Ghana gave a shameful account of themselves when they played a 1-1 draw with Congo in the qualifier for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.
A first half mistake by Joseph Attamah Larweh saw the Stars go down by a goal when the Congolese player, Thievy Bifouma put the ball beautifully behind the net.
The game also saw fans at the Baba Yara Sports stadium treated to an appalling performance by the Black Stars team that looked clueless on the day.
The Black Stars got the equalizer in the second half when Thomas Partey scored.
Prior to the Ghana game, the race to top Group E, which guarantees qualification, had been blown wide open by Uganda following the Cranes stunning home victory over Egypt.
But alas, the Black Stars failed to capitalize on the win by Uganda on Thursday. It is now next to impossible for the Black Stars to make it to the next World Cup in Russia.
