Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor was pleased with their preparations for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Gabon.

The Sparrow Hawks held Ivory Coast in their opening Group C game on Monday evening and they will now take on Morocco on Friday.

The 32-year-old forward has stated that he's aware of the fact that his main responsibility is to score goals for the Sparrow Hawks.

"Our preparations went well and I'd like to thank the government for the efforts they made," Adebayor told AFP.

"This time there were no problems with our kit supply, no problems with bonuses. Everything was sorted out in time.

"Our only objective is to do well. We have everyone behind us, now it is up to us to play, take pleasure and give pleasure to others," he continued.

"I think the whole country looks to me to score goals and help the team win games. I have an obligation to do that against Morocco on Friday."

Togo's last Group C game will be against the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in Port-Gentil on Tuesday.
