Emmanuel Adebayor marked a beneficial international break with a full return to fitness and a virtuoso appearance for Togo on Saturday.
The 25-year-old scored the vital goal in his country’s 1-0 win over Samuel Eto’o’s Cameroon in the pursuit for a place at next year’s World Cup finals.
It was massive delight for his countrymen – as much as that of Arsenal fans who last witnessed Adebayor limping off at Tottenham in February.
The Togolese did go on to miss a penalty later in the game today but what stole the headlines was this significant goal.
