Togo eased into the group stage of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers following a 2-0 home victory over Comoros Islands at the Stade de Kégué in Lomé on Tuesday.
The win turned a finely-balanced tie in Togo’s favour as they claimed a 3-1 aggregate success, with coach Claude le Roy now set to lead the side in the group stages in the hunt for a second finals appearance after Germany 2006.
Home nerves were eased when Togo took the lead on 10 minutes after Kassim M’Dahoma turned the ball into his own net after an unlucky ricochet.
Togo continued to look the most likely to scored and doubled their advantage on 71 minutes when Gilles Sunu reacted quickest to a rebound off the post and drilled home a low shot that also struck the upright, but this time went in.
