Togo set to have ban lifted

Togo are set to compete in the next African Cup of Nations after a peace deal was brokered by Fifa president Sepp Blatter (photo).
The president of the Confederation of African Football is to ask for the ban which prevents Togo from competing at the next two tournaments to be lifted.
The president will ask the CAF executive committee at its meeting on 15th May to lift the sanctions after a settlement was reached today between the Togo Football Federation and CAF following mediation initiated by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
As part of the agreement, the TFF agreed it did not comply with CAF competition regulations over their withdrawal from the 2010 tournament earlier this year.
Togo withdrew from the tournament in Angola in January following a terrorist attack on their team bus which left three people dead.
