Togo – Algeria: The match of life or death

Togo plays a decisive match against Algeria on Sunday (November 18th) at the Lomé Municipal Stadium. This match of the 5th day of the qualifiers of the African Cup of Nations (CAN 2019) is very determining for the men of Claude Le Roy who occupy the third place of the group D, behind the Fennecs of Algeria and the Squirrels of Benin .

For this match, the French technician called 23 players. A team in which we find the captain Emmanuel Adebayor who thus makes his comeback after missing the double confrontation against The Gambia. However, Claude Le Roy will have to do without some of his executives including Djene Dakonam. The defender of Getafe is punished by a red in the match against Gambia.

The former defender of AS Togo Port, Hakim Ouro Sama, current member of Lille (Ligue1 French) will not be in the game either.

As for James Olufade, he was simply dismissed by the national coach. To overcome these absences, the “white sorcerer” will have to rely on the defender of the Togolese Dynamic, Kouloun Maklibè, Simon Gbégnon and Ouro-Akoriko Sadate.

Denkey Kevin, Barcola Malcolm, Fadil Soumanou, Wilson Akakpo, Kossi Koudagba, Bodzromah, Akoro Bilali are also included in this list.

With its 5 points, Togo will have to excel this Sunday at the municipal stadium in Lome to overcome Algerians who travel has not been successful for some time. If they have the obligation of result, Emmanuel Adebayor and his people must also win with the way since Benin, which totals the same number of points as Algeria (7 points) will imperatively need to be protected from small calculations last matches, in front of a Gambia who has not yet said his last word.

The Eperviers of Togo will be able to count on the highly anticipated sports public this Sunday, a public lacking thrills for some time and who dreams of experiencing once again the euphoria of a qualification to a final phase of the African Cup of football nations.
