The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has fined Ethiopia’s football federation $10,000 after the team’s fans threw plastic bottles, vuvuzelas and other items on the pitch when goalkeeper Jemal Tassew was sent off for a professional foul during Monday’s 1-1 draw with Zambia at the African Cup of Nations.
According to Caf’s release: “The Board decided to impose a financial sanction on Ethiopia amounting to 10,000 USD, nevertheless, the board decided to suspend 5,000 USD on condition that Ethiopia is not found guilty of a similar offence until the end of the tournament.”
