According to Ugandan journalist, Usher Komushigha, Tunisian Wahbi Khazri went to the Senegalese bench at the end of the game & punched Aliou Cisse.
A Dylan Bronn own goal in extra time was enough to send the Teranga Lions into their first AFCON final since 2002.
However, after the game, the story was not a sweet one as the Tunisian player moved to the bench of the Senegalese and used his fist on the Aliou Cisse.
The Senegalese coach was saved by the security on ground at the stadium.
It was obvious with a tensed atmosphere as some decisions didn’t go down well with the Tunisian team after there were controversial calls by the referee.
A fight had broken out in the Media Tribune between Tunisian and Senegalese journalists while both teams on the pitch had lost two penalties.
The tension of the game had increased after the calls which the journalists didn’t go down well with them.
It remains to be seen what will happen if Senegal reports the case.
