LOME, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Togo's unexpected run of success in
their qualifying campaign for the 2006 World Cup continued on
Sunday with a 2-0 win over Congo.
Togo, who have already beaten group favourites Senegal, went
top of the standings in African zone group one, advancing to
seven points. They lead Zambia and Senegal on goal difference.
Togo were in the lead at halftime in Lome after Congo
defender Fabry Makita-Passy turned an effort from Togo striker
Kader Coubadja-Toure into his own net in the 39th minute.
Togo added a second in the 70th minute from Monaco's
Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor who broke free of the off-side trap to
make sure of the points for the home side, who are coached by
Nigeria's 1994 World Cup captain Stephen Keshi.
