Serge Akakpo: Dreaming of joining former team-mates in England

Akakpo is busy captaining the Togo team that kicks off their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations campaign against the Ivory Coast on Tuesday.

The defender is currently contracted to MSK Zilina in Slovakia but counts several stars of the English game among his friends from his days at Auxerre and in France youth teams.

And the 25-year-old, who was wounded in the 2010 attack on the Togo team, is hopeful of joining them in England once his commitments with the national team in South Africa are completed.

"I have lots of friends there like Younes Kaboul and Abou Diaby, who I played with for Auxerre, and Hatem Ben Arfa and Samir Nasri, who were also my team-mates," Akakpo told the Sunday Times.

"England today has the best championship in the world. Playing there is my dream."
