Complications with Togo travel



Togo are likely to land in South Africa on Thursday for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations following their inability to travel today (Wednesday).

The team were meant to land in Gauteng this morning, but they were not on the flight, leaving journalists perplexed at the non-arrival.

The contingent met Togo Prime Minister Arthème Ahoomey-Zunu on Monday and were expected to leave the following day.

Unlike previous tournaments, issues relating to bonus structures and participation have been addressed by government.

The squad will be joined by Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor and France-based goalkeeper Kossi Agassa.

Adebayor left London on Sunday but he is yet to report to camp.

Agassa, who played for French Ligue 1 side Reims in their 2-1 defeat to Bastia, has also not made himself available.

Reports in Lome say that Thomas Dossevi has been added to the squad in case of injury.

Togo's opening Group D match will be against title favourites Ivory Coast on 22 January in Durban before Tunisia and Algeria.

Didier Six’s final warm-up match was a 2-1 win against Niger’s home-based side in Lome.
