Who Is Pretending To Be The Togo Soccer Team?Last week, Bahrain hosted Togo in a friendly, beating them 3-0. Then Togo's soccer federation said they hadn't actually sent their national team, and they didn't know who Bahrain had just played.
Bahrain's coach complained about the match immediately afterward, saying the Togo team "were not fit enough to play 90 minutes." Allegations quickly sprung up that a fake agent had booked the match, and sold it to Bahrain's soccer federation.
Now Togo's sports minister says the players belonged to a "mafia group." Wonderful.
