The African Football Confederation officially announced that it rejected Tunisia's application for a rematch with Mali, maintaining the original 1-0 score.
In the first round of the African Cup of Nations, Tunisia lost 0-1 to Mali, but the referee Sikazwe blew the final whistle in the 89th minute of the game. This sparked dissatisfaction among Tunisian players and protests. The Tunisian side then proposed to restart the game.
After reviewing the Tunisian team's protest and the report of the match official on duty, the CFA confirmed to dismiss Tunisia's protest and maintain Mali's 1-0 Tunisia result.
