Togo Football Federation Appeals Banning

Filed under: Uncategorized — pfom @ 2:42 pm

Togo was suspended recently from the next two African Cup of Nations for dropping out of last month’s tournament.  They pulled out after their team bus was attacked in the host nation, Angola.  Two members of the Togo staff and a driver were killed in the attacks.

Today, they have rightly appealed the RIDICULOUS banning from the next two tournaments by the African Football Confederation (CAF).  I really hope the CAF thinks about their punishment and rescinds it because it’s making them look heartless and foolish really.  How can you punish a team for dropping out of a tournament when they just experienced something so awful?
