Crippled keeper's plight is soccer's shame

If you remember back to the CAF's tournament just prior to the World Cup this year. Togo's team was taking a bus through Angola, where armed separatists were causing strife. Despite a small armed escort, the rebels opened fire on the Togolese bus, killing the driver, a coach, one of the press and crippling their keeper. Subsequently, Togo pulled out of the tournament only to have the CAF ban them from playing in it again for the next two years in a heartless move.

Now that you have some refresher background and because I can't do this story the justice that it deserves, be sure to click on it to get the AP's in depth reporting.
