Ghana’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification is in danger after Group D opponents Zambia were awarded three points by FIFA.
The Chipolopolo are also three goals richer after wining a protest against Sudan who fielded an unqualified player in their opening qualifier.
Sudan won the encounter 2-0 in Khartoum in June this year.
FIFA’s disciplinary committee ruled that Saif Ali, who scored one of the goals, should not have played after receiving yellow cards in previous competitive matches.
Sudan were denied the points and the country’s Football Association fined US$6,430.
Zambia have now moved to the summit of the Group with six points; three more than second place Ghana.
The Black Stars were beaten 1-0 in Ndola by the African champions also in June.
