BAMAKO, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Senegal assistant-coach Jules Bocande was handed a one-match touchline ban on Sunday for throwing a bottle of water into the crowd on Saturday as his team grabbed a last-gasp win at the African Nations Cup.

The incident came after Souleymane Camara gave Senegal a 1-0 victory in their group D match against Zambia in Bamako and secured the World Cup finalists a berth in the quarter-finals.

Bocande, who coached Senegal at the 1994 Nations Cup finals in Tunisia, was a successful player for the national side a decade ago and serves on a panel of former African professionals who advise the Confederation of African Football.

He will not be able to sit with coach Bruno Metsu or enter the team's changing room during next Thursday's match against fellow World Cup finalists Tunisia, CAF said. The decision was taken by officials on Sunday.

Earlier this week, the Ivory Coast were fined $5000 for wearing kit with advertising logos larger than the allowed size, CAF said. The Democratic Republic of Congo were fined $1000 for changing their colours without permission ahead of their first game against Cameroon in Sikasso last week.
