The Togolese Fotball Federation (FTF) has lifted its sanctions against three players of the national squad, the Sparrow Hawks. FTF dropped the sanctions Thursday against star striker Emmanuel Shéyi Adébayor of the English club Arsenal, Daré Nibombé (RAEC Mons, Belgium) and Kader Cougbadja (Al Jezira, United Arab Emirates) who on re excluded from the national team on 24 March 2007 due to "indiscipline".

The three players had slammed the Federation for unpaid allowances from the 2006 World Cup, which they put at FCFA30 million for each of them.The sanctions were lifted following "appeals from the population, sports fans and the country's high sports authorities," FTF said in a statement.

But the internationals have yet not reacted to the move.

The lifting of the sanctions comes before the Sierra Leone-Togo match scheduled 2 June in Freetown in round four of the qualifiers of the African Cup of Nations to be hosted in 2008 in Ghana.

Togo's national team is now leader of Group 9 ahead of Mali, Benin and Sierra Leone.
