2002 World Cup - Togo 3 Zambia 2

First Published: May 07, 2001

Zambia are now out of World Cup qualifying contention after a late fightback by Togo in Lome. Zambia dominated the first half and took the lead with an early penalty by Elie Jatana. But Togo equalised in the 48th minute with a low drive from Komlan Assignon. Janvoini Izimbo restored Zambia's lead after 65 minutes from close range and the game seemed to be heading to them..

Togo won the tie by scoring twice in the last ten minutes, with striker Jerome Dote scoring from close range before Eric Akoto hit the winner with an 88th minute free kick drive.
