    Togo To Play In African Nations Cup After All

    A spokesman originally said they were withdrawing but one of the strikers now says

    "We have all just met and we will be on the pitch to play against Ghana on Monday."

    "People died for this African Nations Cup, others were injured.

    "We cannot abandon them and go like cowards.

    "If we stay here it is for them. But also so as not to satisfy the rebels.

    "Our government does not necessarily agree with us but we are all determined to play in this tournament.

    Who was it, separatists? Rebels?

    EDIT: BBC reporting it may be FLEC, a separatist group in northern Angola.

    Angola, by the way for the people who don't know of the history of the nation, was a nation going along nicely in the 1960's, like many other African nations. Because the government had allied itself to the Soviet Union, the US didn't like this and proceeded to Black Op destabilise it from within. It suffered decades of war, a proxy war waging between the US and Soviets funded groups. It hasn't recovered yet.

    Seems to be a lot of debate, the togo government are insisting the players return home but the team are saying they are staying and playing.

    Do you think adebyour ran the length of the bus to celebrate infront of the gunners the other day ?

    The double, FA cup and Carling cup will do me for this season, and a third place finish, dont want to be TOO greedy.

    Wenger = voice of reason.

    will an attack in 2012 cancel the olympics ? nah, thought not.
