Togo-Swaziland 6-0

Togo-Swaziland 6-0

Arsenal star Emmanuel Adebayor ended a one-month national team boycott by scoring four goals as Togo sank Swaziland 6-0 Saturday in a 2010 World Cup-African Nations Cup qualifier.

The striker told London newspapers he would shun the key Group 11 clash in neutral Accra to protest poor organisation of a team which defied the odds by reaching the 2006 World Cup in Germany.But Swazi hopes of not having to contend with the gangling goal poacher were dashed as he had a last-minute change of heart and struck once before half-time and three times in the second half.

Salifou Moustapha and Olufade Akekami also scored for the 'Sparrowhawks' as they spectacularly avenged a 2-1 loss in the tiny southern Africa mountain kingdom last June.

The result confirmed Zambia as winners of a mini-league reduced to three nations when Eritrea withdrew before it kicked off, but six-point Togo are likely to make the final round as one of the best eight runners-up.

Togo were forced to play in Ghana as they are serving a three-match ban imposed by world governing body FIFA because two Mali footballers were violently assaulted in Lome after a 2008 Nations Cup qualifier.
