Togo manager Stephen Keshi has vowed not to let the golden chance of leading the small nation to their first World Cup finals slip by. Keshi, the former Nigeria captain and 1994 African Cup of Nations winner, has led the Hawks to the top of Group One of World Cup qualifying.
Their 2-2 draw against Senegal, in Dakar last weekend, gives them 17 points and puts them two points ahead of their West African neighbours, who are third in the standings.
Having come this far and seeing the love showered on the team by the people, Keshi believes nothing should stop them from making history.
It has been amazing to see the support and appreciation that we have got since returning from Dakar, Keshi told BBC Sport.
You cannot imagine the number of people that have come to my house to see me.
My military guard had to turn many of them back.
