Benjamin Tetteh sent off for punching an opponent in the face after the Ghana vs Gabon AFCON match whistled full time, and he only came as a last minute substitute


Benjamin Tetteh was shown a red card well after Ghana’s 1-1 draw with Gabon ended in the Africa Cup of Nations on Friday.

The Ghanaian striker, who plays for Turkish Super Lig club Yeni Malatyaspor, only came on as a substitute in injury time but still managed to cause plenty of drama.

Tetteh was expelled

Ghana led in the 18th minute as Andre Ayew opened the scoring.

However, with just two minutes to go, Gabon’s Jim Allevinah equalized.

In an attempt to snatch a winner, striker Tetteh was sent into the fray.

In the end, he threw more punches with his fists than he took with his feet.

As a crash erupted after the full-time whistle, players from both nations clashed.

Amid the drama, Tetteh punched Gabon’s Aaron Boupendza in the face causing him to fall dramatically on the pitch.

Tetteh then fled into the tunnel.

As a result, it took several minutes for Algerian referee Lahlou Benbraham to determine who exactly deserved the red card.

After deliberations, he sent Ghanaian Thomas Partey down the tunnel to retrieve Tetteh.

The attacker was brought back to the field and received his red card.
