AFCON 2021: Zambian referee blows for full-time early in Mali’s win over Tunisia

Tunisia coach confronts referee after error

Mali beat Tunisia 1-0 at the Africa Cup of Nations in a Group F game which ended in controversy after the referee blew for full-time early.

Carthage Eagles coach Mondher Kebaier and his technical staff rushed onto the field to confront Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe after he ended the game a minute early.

After a post-match press conference had started, tournament organisers ordered the game to be played to a conclusion.

However, Tunisia did not return to the field and Mali were declared winners.
