Bahrain claimed their first win under Austrian coach Josef Hickersberger as they overwhelmed Togo 3-0 at Bahrain national stadium.

The Asian nation had returned consecutive draws with China and Qatar in Hickersberger's opening two games in charge.

Bahrain opened the scoring after nine minutes through their striker Jaycee Okwunwanne who followed a neat pass from Abdullah Omar with a close shot into the net. Okwunwanne scored his second goal in the last seconds of the first half when he diverted a cross from Mohamad Hubail.

Bahrain continued their dominance in the second half and they added a third goal from the penalty spot after 67 minutes. Sayed Mohamad Adnan was fouled inside the area and Ismaeil Abdullatif made no mistake.

The Bahrainis will continue their preparations for the forthcoming Gulf Cup in December and the 2011 AFC Asian Cup with a friendly against Kuwait next month.
