“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.

However, Referee Bennett who reportedly admitted being terribly embarrassed by some of his decisions in the game, has been sanctioned by the CAF for the his poor performance in the match.
