-FIFA has thrown out Ghana's protest over their match with Uganda
-Ghana had asked for a replay after the referee controversially disallowed two goals from the Black Stars
The Ghana Football Association's (GFA) petition to FIFA for a replay of the Black Stars' World Cup qualifier against Uganda has been dismissed.
According to reports, FIFA will not be acting on the protest which was filed against some of the referee's decisions.
“No proceedings will be opened around the World Cup qualifier match Uganda vs. Ghana", Associated Press reported FIFA as saying.
The GFA lodged the protest after last Saturday's goalless draw in Kampala.
They believed South African referee Daniel Bennett and his assistants had been unfair to the Black Stars by making two wrong offside calls which cost them two goals. Replays suggested an injury time strike from Raphael Dwamena should have counted.
But Egypt's 2-1 defeat of the Republic of Congo 2-1 the next day, made the protest a mere formality as the Egyptians won the group to qualify for their first World Cup since Italy 1990.
