AFCON drama continues as Ghana's Benjamin Tetteh sees red with punches thrown at full-time


There was more drama at the Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] on Friday evening when Ghana’s Benjamin Tetteh appeared to throw two punches after the final whistle against Gabon. The 24-year-old was then shown a straight red card, despite the full-time whistle being blown minutes prior after a dramatic encounter between the two sides. 

Tensions ran high after the full-time whistle on Friday, with Jim Allevinah netting an 88th-minute equaliser for Gabon. 

Ghana had enjoyed the lead for the vast majority of the match, with Andre Ayew opening the scoring inside the first 20 minutes. 

But the late goal left Ghana floundering in Group C, having failed to win either of their first two matches at the tournament. 

Gabon, however, were left in good shape as shared spoils means they have gone through their first two clashes without tasting defeat.
