FT: Tunisia 0-1 Mali; Penalty from Kone enough to SEE OFF the Carthage Eagles as Khazri MISSES late PENALTY

Absolute shame and embarrassment as the match between Tunisia and Mali was set to be completed, as both sides were called out in order to conclude the tie. Surprisingly, it was the fourth official who would have taken charge of the match upon resumption and he added five minutes as injury time but Tunisia ceded the match by refusing to come out of the tunnel.

Hmmm, what an encounter! Ibrahima Kone’s penalty wins it for the Malians but trust me…Tunisia will be LIVID following the referee’s below par handling of the game. The referee HAD ENDED the game well before time in the 85th minute, before continuing only for him to finally blow his whistle after 89 minutes and 47 seconds, which sparked protests from the Tunisians. Surely, the referee’s handling of this game has cast a doubt on the quality of officiating on the continent and also the AFCON as a whole. He simply sparked unnecessary controversy over what should not be in the first place.

The starting XI of both teams, ahead of their clash in Limbe.

Our feature match will see us focus on Tunisia vs Mali at the Limbe stadium. The Carthage Eagles have been some kind of an underachiever on the continent and would want to make their mark at the tournament. Mali on the other hand, boasts of what it takes to inflict damage on their Northern African counterparts.

Action on Tuesday only produced one goal out of three matches, as Kelechi Iheanacho’s first half effort proved more than enough to see Nigeria beat pre-tournament favourites Egypt 1-0. Other fixtures saw Sudan play out a goalless draw with Guinea Bissau, while defending champions Algeria were held to a stalemate by Sierra Leone.
