Football: Mutiny on the cards; SWITZERLAND v TOGO Group G, today 2pm, BBC1.

TOGO or not to go? That is the question as Togo's mutinous players prepare to decide whether to stage a boycott of today's fixture with Switzerland.

The Togo players, who claim they have not received promised bonuses for their first-ever World Cup qualification, had threatened not to travel to Dortmund and only relented after talks with FIFA officials.

But, after training yesterday, captain Jean-Paul Abalo said the team would hold a meeting to decide whether to fulfil the fixture.

"We will decide tomorrow," Abalo said. "We want to see the money in our accounts - it's the group that decides.

"This will be the decision of the whole squad - not just one player."
