AFCON: CAF Makes Final Decision On Tunisia, Mali Match

AFCON: CAF Makes Final Decision On Tunisia, Mali Match

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has said the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals 2021 Group F match between Tunisia and Mali shall not be replayed despite a protest by Tunisia’s protest.

The football body received an official complaint from the Tunisian team about the conduct of referee Janny Sikazwe during the match.

The Zambian official blew the full-time whistle with five minutes of regulation left to play, and after protests, he resumed the game but ended it again in the 89th minute.

Protests continued from the Tunisian team, and CAF officials at the stadium then ordered both teams to get back on to the pitch and finish the remaining minute plus the additional time with a new referee.

However, Tunisia players didn’t turn up and decided to file an official complaint to CAF.

In a statement, CAF announced that it has turned down Tunisia’s protest and confirmed that the match will not be replayed. The statement reads:

The Organising Committee of the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 met today to deliberate on the match between Tunisia and Mali played yesterday, 12 January 2022.

After examining the protest of Tunisia and all the match officials report, the Organising Committee decided the following:

– To dismiss the protest lodged by the Tunisian team.
– To homologate the match result as 1-0 in favour of Mali.

CAF ndoyakatodhakwa kudarika referee. I assume the referee is in cahoots with caf officials in a betting scam. They smiled al the way to the bank after that result

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE BUSH LAWYER SAID THAT AFCON COULD NOT ORDER A REPLAY BECAUSE IF THEY DID THAT THEY COULD HAVE PUNISHED MALI TO THE ADVANTAGE OF TUNISIA INSTEAD OF PUNISHING THE REAL CULPRIT WHO WAS THE ZAMBIAN REFEREE.

WHAT REMAINS NOW IS TO HEAR WHAT PUNISHMENT AFCON MANAGEMENT IS GOING TO METE OUT ON THE ZAMBIAN REFEREE.

YOURS SINCERELY

Mistakes are common guys i ddnt watch the game bt it has come to my attention that the Zambian referee during the game gave a 5min water break and forgot to pause his watch. Meaning his watch became 5 mins ahead of actual time played.Again on stopping on 89 min he thot he was done with added time.
