Former Togolese defender Vincent Bossou, who earned 26 caps and scored one goal for his country, has issued a rallying call to the national team following the draw for the 2025 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Togo finds itself in Group E, facing off against Liberia, Algeria, and Equatorial Guinea. Speaking to 228Foot, Bossou emphasized the importance of approaching every match with the intent to win, highlighting the competitive nature of African football.

“It’s not bad [talking about the draw]. Above all, we have to negotiate the matches well. When you play at home, we have to do everything to win and manage our travels well.

There is no small team now. When we see Liberia, Equatorial Guinea, they are good teams that do not have too many stars but who play.

Even if Algeria is not in great shape these days, once they get to the qualifying round, all the countries wake up.”

Bossou, now 38 years old, stressed that with proper organization, Togo has a legitimate chance to qualify for AFCON 2025.

“If there is a good organization around this national team, I believe it is possible for Togo to qualify for AFCON 2025,” he asserted.

In addition to his insights on the team’s prospects, Bossou made a heartfelt appeal to everyone involved in Togolese football to unite and address the current issues plaguing the sport in the country.

“There are too many problems around Togolese football at the moment,” he noted. “We have to try to resolve this to get back on track because missing three AFCONs for a country that has already been to the World Cup is not normal.

It is possible, but we have to pull ourselves together because if we miss this AFCON again, it will be so serious.”

Bossou underscored the importance of each match and the necessity of solid organization. “Every match counts and we have to organize ourselves well. It will make us happy that Togo is back in the AFCON.

Because when we are in our clubs, most people make fun of us. Good luck to the Eperviers. We will always be behind them.”

This passionate plea from a former player reflects the high stakes for Togo as they embark on their AFCON 2025 qualifying campaign.

The team’s performance in Group E will be closely watched, with fans and former players alike hoping for a return to the continental stage.

As Togo prepares to face Liberia, Algeria, and Equatorial Guinea, the emphasis will be on unity, strategy, and determination.

The road to AFCON 2025 is fraught with challenges, but with leaders like Bossou urging solidarity and focus, the Hawks have a fighting chance to rise above and secure their place in the prestigious tournament.

Bossou’s message resonates not only with the players but also with the broader Togolese football community.

His call for a collective effort to overcome internal issues and push for success serves as a crucial reminder of the potential within Togolese football.

As the qualifiers progress, the unity and resolve of the Eperviers will be paramount in their quest to return to the African Cup of Nations.
