Adebayor in Togo squad for Liberia tie

Togo newly-appointed coach Tom Saintfiet has named his roster for the upcoming 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Liberia scheduled for June 14 in Lome.

The Belgian manager included the Sparrow Hawks’ most influential player Emmanuel Adebayor amid suggestions in the local media that the 31-year-old may face problems of concentration due to his much-hyped family issues.

The Tottenham striker recently lamented “acts of ingratitude” from his family, including mother.

Placed in Group A alongside Tunisia, Djibouti and Liberia, Togo will play a preparatory friendly match against neighbours Ghana on June 7 in Accra.
