The Osmanlispor man opened the scoring in the 18th minute after a mistake from debuting Joseph Attamah, and while Thomas Partey rescued a point five minutes from time, it wasn't enough to prevent the home supporters from turning on their team.

Veteran captain and striker Asamoah Gyan admits they are staring elimination in the face. "So, I can say we have two good centre forwards who are ready to play on Monday".

One of Ghana's best efforts in the first half came from Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey who forced a good save by Congo goalkeeper Barel Mouko from a long-range effort.

"My players had an off-day in Uganda", said Argentina-born Egypt coach Hector Cuper.

Also, Udoh Emmanuel, Akwa Ibom state governor, had promised to reward them with $10,000 for each goal scored against the reigning African champions. There are three matches left.
