AFCON 2013: Togo through to last eight.

The Hawks of Togo have qualified for the quarter final stage of the on going African cup of nations in South Africa. The West African nation played a 1-1 draw against a much dreaded Tunisian side on Wednesday.

The Togolese took aan unlikely lead before Tunisia scored an equaliser towards the end of the first half via penalty.
After the restart, the Tunisians became desperate as they fought to book a place in the next stage. The team were awarded a questionable penalty, but they missed it.

That single act was enough for Togo to qualify for the last eight of the African cup of nations.

Burkina Faso will face Togo on Sunday.

There are seven West African teams in the quarter final. They are Cape Verde,Ghana,Mali,Burkina Faso,Nigeria,Ivory Coast and Togo.
