Malabo – African football chiefs on Friday hit Equatorial Guinea with a $100 000 fine for unrest in a Africa Cup of Nations semi-final in which 36 fans were injured.

But the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said that despite disturbances blamed on Equatorial Guinea fans in Thursday’s semi-final defeat to Ghana, supporters would be allowed into the country’s third-place play off against Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday.

CAF meted out the fine to the Nations Cup hosts “for aggressive behaviour and being repeat offenders” for crowd trouble, said a confederation statement.
