Togo international Alaixys Romao has been selected as the Player of the Month for August by FC Lorient's fans, the Ligue 1 club revealed on their official website on Thursday.

The 26-year-old French-born Togolese midfielder joined les Merlus last summer from French Ligue 2 club Grenoble and has performed extremely well with his new club in the last four fixtures.

Some 23,837 fans participated in the vote, which is a tradition the north-western French club have maintained for long.

This is good news for the Sparrow Hawks of Togo who play host to Tunisia’s Eagles of Carthage in the second round of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
