|| Togo's first crack at qualifying
came in the preliminary qualifiers to the
1974 tournament, but they have yet to threaten
the big guns for a place at the FIFA World
Cup™ finals. Congo DR ended their first
shot at qualifying with Guinea and Niger following
suit in later years.
||Togo lost all their preliminary matches
in the contest for places at the 1994 FIFA
World Cup USA, although they did manage a
win over Zimbabwe four years later and beat
Zambia and Libya in the 2002 qualifying tournament
albeit in a group that was won by Cameroon.
|| The greatest result in Togo's history came
in the 1998 African Cup of Nations, a 2-1
triumph over four-times champions Ghana which
saw the fancied nation eliminated from the
tournament. Following a 1-0 defeat to Equatorial
Guinea in the first leg of their preliminary
qualifier for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Togo
came back to win the return 2-0 and progress
to the next round.
