The CAF Disciplinary Board, at the weekend, took disciplinary action against Ghanaâ€™s Benjamin Tetteh and Maliâ€™s Bilal Toure.
The continental football governing body also fined Gabon $20000.
CAF took the decision following a meeting held on Saturday to deliberate on a number of incidents that occurred at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.
It disclosed this in a statement via its website on Saturday.
The statement read in part, â€œCAF Disciplinary Board decided to:
â€œTo suspend Ghana player, Benjamin Tetteh, for one additional game match in addition to his automatic suspension of two matches. Consequently, the player has been suspended for three matches.
â€œThe Disciplinary Board has also issued a stern warning to both teams for their unsportsmanship behaviour after refereesâ€™ full-time whistle.
â€œMali Football Federation contested the red card awarded to their player, Bilal Toure in their AFCON fixture against Tunisia on 12 January 2022 in Limbe.
â€œCAF Disciplinary Board upheld the decision of the referee. Consequently, Toure is suspended for two matches.
â€œGabon was charged with violating the CAF Regulations and Directives within the framework of the Africa Cup of Nations. On 6 January 2022, Gabon allegedly went against CAF instructions and changed their hotel without permission from CAF.â€
The statement added, â€œThe CAF Disciplinary Board found Gabon guilty and imposed a fine of USD 20,000 for non-compliance with CAFâ€™s directives.â€
