Two Ghana Premier League stars, Komlan Agbegniadan and Fatao Dida Alhassan have been named in Togo’s squad for next month’s 2019 Afcon qualifier.
The Hawks face North African giants Algeria in an opening Group D clash on June 9.
After observing the performance of his stars which led him to watch leaders WAFA SC defeat Liberty Professionals in Sogakope early this month, coach Claude Le Roy has included the two Togo nationals who featured in the Ghana Premier League game IN HIS 23-man roster.
Goalkeeper Fatao featured for Liberty and picked the net twice from goals scored by compatriot Agbegniadan who plays as a striker for the Ghana league leaders. The latter was part of Togo’s squad in the last Afcon in Gabon whereas the shot-stopper has been first choice at Liberty.
Le Roy also kept faith with national star Emmanuel Adebayor, the long-serving Atakora Lalawélé who is currently without a club and also invited two players from the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Togo will pitch camp in France before facing the Algerians.
