The Ghana players had been angered that the Gabon team did not return play to them prior to their equaliser. In the lead up to the Gabon goal, Ghana’s Daniel Kyereh had gone down with Baba Rahman playing the ball to touch.
But when play resumed, Gabon did not return the ball to Ghana in the spirit of fair play and went ahead to score.
In the ensuing scuffle, Ghana striker Benjamin Tetteh who was a late substitute was given a red card for violent conduct. He was seen hitting a Gabon player.
