Equatorial Guinea-Ghana riot: Joyous evening turns to night of shame

Equatorial Guinea-Ghana riot: Joyous evening turns to night of shame
equatorial-guinea-ghana-riot-joyous-evening-turns-to-night-of-shame


Shortly after Ghana scored their third goal http://www.officialauthenticsteelersshop.com/STEELERS-STEPHON-TUITT-JERSEY against Equatorial Guinea in Thursday's Africa Cup of Nations semi-final, Equatorial Guinea's supporters disgraced their country. The home fans began to cause trouble before half-time, hurling so many water bottles at the Ghana bench that their squad needed protection from riot police to get down the tunnel. The bottle throwing continued, delaying the start of the second half and prompting the Equatorial Guinea players to plead with their own fans to stop. But the pleas fell on deaf ears, and what should have been a night of celebration for the visiting Ghanaian fans inside the Estadio de Malabo became the stuff of nightmares. So many stones were thrown in their direction by the enraged home fans - whose improbable Nations Cup dream lay in tatters - that they had to force open a security gate and run on to the pitch, where they huddled behind the goal for their own safety. I was forced to take refuge among them, my hopes of filming the joyous celebrations of the Ghanaian fans after the game ruined by the violence. There I saw the objects that Khyri Thornton Authentic Jersey had been thrown. A piece of mirror, a broken plate, a broken-off handle, bottles filled with urine and stones. Later I saw a Ghanaian fan collapse after a stone struck him near his heart. Fortunately, he was not seriously injured. "This was the highest state of barbarism," said Ghana FA chairman Kwesi Nyantakyi. Among the many questions that have to be asked are: Why was there no security cordon placed around the Ghana fans behind the goal once they sheltered together in fear? Why was there not sufficient distance placed between those supporters and the locals? And why did it take security personnel so long before they entered the stands to control the violent fans? An apparent attempt to clear them by flying a helicopter low over the stadium was, unsurprisingly, a failure. The event will put even greater pressure on the Confederation of African Football (Caf), already under scrutiny over allegations of cheating in Equatorial Guinea's controversial quarter-final win over Tunisia. Caf denies the allegations. Equatorial Guinea have done a remarkably http://www.nflgiantsofficialonlines.com/GIANTS-KELLEN-DAVIS-JERSEY good job of staging the finals, given that they had just two months' notice after Ebola fears forced Morocco to withdraw. Now, the tiny oil-rich nation is likely to face sanction by Caf. Those fans who rioted turned an evening of joyous celebration to a night of shame. The stones they threw did not just damage the Ghanaian fans they struck, they damaged African football itself.
