Equatorial Guinea ended up winning the game 2-1 in the extra time, following a dubious decision that was taken by the controversial referee.
Tunisia were fined $50 000 and the referee, who badly handled the game between the two mentioned nations, was sent home instantly and delisted from CAF’s “A” referees panel for six months.
CAF also ordered Tunisia to pay the cost of damages they caused at Estadio de Bata, and to sent a letter of apology for “insinuations of bias and lack of ethics against CAF and its officials, or to present irrefutable evidence to substantiate the accusations” before midnight on Thursday.
“Our investigation into the affair and the opinion of the neutrals is that we suffered scandalous injustice from referees, not only in the match against Equatorial Guinea but right from the start of the tournament. We will explain all of this to CAF at a meeting,” TFF committee member Hichem Ben Omrane was quoted as saying.
