Togo’s team for their forthcoming international friendlies against Sierra Leone and Benin includes three Ghana-born players: Emmanuel Hackman, Kennedy Boateng, and Samuel Asamoah.
Hackman, Boateng, and Asamoah are among the 38 players named to the 38-man team for the upcoming friendlies in Turkey.
The three will be making their Togo debuts. They will join the Hawks for a ten-day training camp in Antalya, Turkey, starting next week.
This season, Asamoah has made 28 appearances for CS Universitatea Craiova, scoring one goal and assisting three times.
Boateng was chosen for his national team debut in November, but the Santa Clara tall defender was unable to play, therefore he will use this international window to make his debut for the West African country.
Togo will play Sierra Leone on March 24, followed by Benin five days later, in preparation for the opening of the 2023 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Cote d’Ivoire.
