The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has handed Ghana's Benjamin Tetteh for three match ban for misconduct on the field.

The scene saw Tetteh punched the face of a Gabonese player.

According to CAF, the officials of the match indicated in their report that after the final whistle, Ghana player Tetteh allegedly assaulted a Gabonese player.

Consequently, the player has been suspended for three matches.

The Disciplinary Board also issued a stern warning to both teams for their unsportsmanship behavior after the referees' full-time whistle.
