Togo Sanctions Threatened

Togo officially disqualified from the African Cup this year. Not only that, the Federation of African Football (CAF) will also discuss the possibility of sanctions to Emmanuel Adebayor et al. Togo withdrew from the 2010 African Nations Cup in Angola following a shooting incident that they experienced. This incident killed three people and wounded two Togo players. Les Eperives originally planned to stay involved after a period of mourning for three days over. However, CAF finally decided to strike Togo from Angola in 2010. "They were disqualified. Group B will contain only three teams," the statement quoted from Soccernet CAF. Not only disqualification, there is the possibility of Togo also be affected by sanctions. As reported the Telegraph, a source of CAF said that the end of this month the executive committee will meet to discuss "the possibility of the need for imposing sanctions" to Emmanuel Adebayor et al. "Actually, it's easy for us to play again and appeared on January 21. I think Ghana (candidate against Togo in the first party) agrees with our step," said Thomas Dossevi Togo midfielder was quoted as saying by Reuters. "Disqualification decision is something that ridiculous. All we wanted to look at the African Cup of Nations," he said.
