Seechurn handed Equatorial Guinea a contentious penalty deep into stoppage time, which saw the side equalise and take the game to extra time.

The Guineans then went on to win the game 2-1 to progress to the semi-finals of the tournament.

However, the decision was understandably unpopular with the Tunisian squad, with a melee ensuing that saw a number of the players attempting to attack him.

The Tunisians were given a £33,000 fine for their behaviour on the pitch, but it was Seechurn that paid the heaviest price by being slapped with a six-month suspension.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have removed him from their list of top African officials, and he will be unable to take control of a match until the July.
