The Equatorial Guinea football federation has been fined 100,000 US dollars and ordered to pay for the treatment of Ghana supporters who were injured by flying missiles during Thursday's Africa Cup of Nations semi-final at the Estadio de Malabo.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) imposed the punishment on Friday, and announced a one-match suspended ground closure on Equatorial Guinea, the tournament hosts who lost the semi-final 3-0.

The ground closure will only be enforced should there be further trouble during Saturday's third-place play-off match between Equatorial Guinea and DR Congo, which also takes place at the Malabo stadium.

Announcing the sanctions on its website, CAF said 36 Ghana supporters were hurt after coming under attack from home supporters, with 14 taken to hospital. It said one of those hospitalised was under close observation.
