Posted: 3 January 2017 Time: 11:47
SuperSport United's Dove Wome has been left out of Togo’s African Nations Cup plans, paying the price for the spell out with injury which cost him a chance to impress coach Claude le Roy.
Wome has battled with injury this season and missed Togo’s friendly matches in October and November where Le Roy auditioned players for the tournament in Gabon.
A preliminary squad of 25 arrived in Senegal at the weekend and on Tuesday began preparations at the coastal beach resort of Saly.
It includes former Free State Stars and AmaZulu centre back Sadat Ouro-Akoriko, who now plays his club football in Saudi Arabia.
Togo play in Group C at the Nations Cup in Oyem against holders Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Morocco.
