The Black Stars' ambitions to make it to a fourth consecutive FIFA World Cup seem to be over following a goalless draw against Uganda on Saturday afternoon.

The result leaves the Black Stars with just six points from five matches and they are yet to win at home having drawn with both Uganda and Congo in Tamale and Kumasi respectively.

With time running out in the game, striker Raphael Dwamena latched on to a rebound from Richmond-Boakye Yiadom and calmly slotted in with the last touch of the game but his effort couldn't stand and the entire technical team rushed to the pitch to vent their frustrations on the officials.

And after the match, Ghanaian sports journalist, Saddick Adams, commonly referred to as Sports Obama, is claiming that the goal was disallowed because the time was up.

According to him, the South African referee disclosed his reason for disallowing the goal to the Black Stars players after the game.

He posted on his Facebook wall:"Referee Daniel Bennett just told the Ghana team why he disallowed the goal. 'Time was up...Time was over'.
