Togo players decide to compete in Cup of Nations

Togo players decide to compete in Cup of Nations
Cabinda: The Togo national football side will play in the African Cup of Nations, one of the players Thomas Dossevi said on Sunday, despite an earlier decision to pull out.

The players had initially said they didn't want to play in the tournament, and the government recalled the team, following Friday's machine gun ambush by Cabinda separatists that killed an assistant coach and squad spokesman.

"In memory of the dead, the national team has decided to play in the African Cup of Nations," said Dossevi.

"We are all heartbroken, it is no longer a party, but we want to show our national colours, our values and that we are men."
