The Hawks of Togo have not left for South Africa on Monday as scheduled. The national team has yet received today from the Prime Minister, Arthème Ahoomey-Zunu the national flag.

"This is not just a flag; it is not a piece of cloth, but rather the whole country, all the people it represents, get good hold of it. Take care, we trust you. The people are with you, God bless you, "said the Prime Minister players.

In the absence of Captain Emmanuel Adebayor, it is vice who received the colors of Togo. Serge Akakpo reaffirmed the commitment of his teammates to make a good turnout.

"Our goal is already moving ahead into the first round. The support you bring us is really heart-warming. We will do our best to meet the expectations of the public, "he said in comments reported by the site republicoftogo.com.

The group is still not complete. Kossi Agassa is expected on Tuesday in Lome. But on the side of the Federation, it ensures that the Hawks will fly on Tuesday to South Africa.
