Togo: Soccer Team Demands Bonuses

Blogger Kangni Alem onTogo's soccer team (Fr): “Business is business and Togolese players are right, logically speaking, to privilege their bank accounts over the country's honor. They demand bonuses, pay them their bloody bonuses. After all that is the rule of thumb for all other national teams! (…) My advice to the team:(…) just loose fast and get back home.”

    Couldn’t have said it any better. Togo has no business in the World Cup. This game is about passion and honor…the togonesse players obviously have neither. Qualifying for the World Cup should have been a tremendous thrill for their country. Now, they don’t even deserve the right to be there.
