FIFA concerned by shocking events...

FIFA has expressed concerns after the Togo national team bus was attacked by rebels in Cabinda en-route to the Africa Cup of Nations on Friday.

Emmanuel Adebayor, the team captain, revealed that the Togo players will meet on Saturday to decide if they will still take part in the tournament after a machine gun attack on their bus - lasting 30 minutes - killed their driver and left six others injured.

FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot told UK: ''FIFA and its president, Joseph S. Blatter, are deeply moved by today's incidents which affected Togo's national team, to whom they express their utmost sympathy.

"FIFA is in touch with the African confederation and its president, Issa Hayatou, from which it expects a full report on the situation.''
