GHANA striker Benjamin Tetteh received a red card after a chaotic scuffle following a 1-1 draw with Gabon in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Allevinah’s goal led to a heated argument between the players after referee Lahlou Benbraham’s final whistle and all turned to rubble.
Tetteh, who came on as a substitute, initially swung a punch at Gabon’s Aaron Boupendza.
The Yeni Malatyaspor tennis player then had a shoving competition with Andre Biyogo Poko before plunging down the tunnel to avoid the wrath of the referees.
But the match official managed to identify the culprit with the help of VAR and ordered the midfielder to return to the field to show him a red card.
Benbraham refused to leave the field and ordered Arsenal star Thomas Partey as well as teammates to ‘get rid of No25’.
However, the 24-year-old never returned and so the referee signaled that the red card had been shown.
