Gabon snatched a draw in the last minutes of their meeting against Ghana (1-1), at the African Cup of Nations. A result that generated great tension: a general fight broke out at the final whistle.
André Ayew was furious and he was not the only one, furious to have seen his Ghana team concede the draw against Gabon with a goal from Clermontois Jim Allevinah in the 18 minute. A general fight broke out on the lawn of Yaoundé at the final whistle of this match of the African Cup of Nations, and we had to wait for long minutes before regaining a semblance of calm.
A punch and a red
Gabon coach Patrice Neveu let his joy explode after this result, which sent former OM player André Ayew into a rage. The Ghanaian striker (18e minute) headed in a huff towards the technician, crossing the referee on his way, held back by a teammate then dismissed by a member of his team’s staff. But behind, the situation degenerated.
General fight with in particular the Ghanaian Benjamin Tetteh who put a punch to one of his adversaries. Moreover, the referee will give him a red card… after long minutes of imbroglio and strong remonstrances to Thomas Partey, because the offending player had meanwhile returned to the locker room.
In the Group C standings, Gabon is second behind Morocco, with four points. Ghana has only one point on its clock and finds itself third, before facing the Comoros on Tuesday.
