Togo, Togo, TogoAt the end of the first half Togo was beating South Korea (1-0). Eventually, the Togolese lost 2-1. Too bad. Togo, a former French colony became independent in 1960. It has a population of about 5 million people. The coach for the Togo team is Otto Pfister who quit his job a few days before the beginning of the World Cup.
