Day 4 of AFCON 2021 witnessed quite absurd scenes during the Tunisia and Mali encounter when the centre referee, Janny Sikazwe, from Zambia, blew for the final whistle in the 85th minute of the match.

While Mali scored theirs, Tunisia missed their penalty.

It is yet to be seen how CAF will resolve this avoidable situation which has caused AFCON ridicule and validates the notion that Africa’s flagship tournament is a small tournament. Contact:.
