Togo are camping in Morocco as part of their preparations for their next 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

Claude Le Roy, the Togo head coach, is busy preparing his side for the AFCON Group D qualifier against Benin which will be played in March, 2018.

The Sparrow Hawks recorded a 2-0 victory over the Menas of Niger at the Stade d'Agadir in the Moroccan city of Agadir on Thursday.

Dove Wome, who is plying his trade in South Africa for SuperSport United, opened the scoring for Togo 26 minutes into the encounter.

Togo's lead was doubled by Mathieu Dossevi, who recently joined French club Metz from Belgian outfit Standard Liege, four minutes into the second-half.

The Sparrow Hawks will now face off with Malawi in another international friendly match at the Stade Al Inbiaate in Agadir on Monday.
