Togo Players Shot In Angola

Usually, I try to keep this blog pretty lighthearted, but occasionally serious stuff gets in the way.

So, the news that gunmen fired on the bus carrying Togo footballers , including Emmanuel Adebayor, is pretty shocking. Particularly as the driver was killed and some of the players were wounded.

Apparently, Togo were supposed to be flying to the Angola capital, Luanda and from there to Cabinda for their African Cup of Nations match.

Quite why they were being driven in a bus going through the disputed - and critically, oil rich - territory of Cabinda is unknown. But, needless to say, the players aren't really in a state to play football.
