The 28-year-old striker has revealed that he and his team-mates have not been paid the money for playing against Morocco in a friendly international in Casablanca earlier this month.

Adebayor says that, if the current situation does not improve, then players will not play for Togo anymore.

"If this does not change, then I will retire from international football and many will stop playing for our country," he said.

"In our FA everyone thinks about their own pockets," Adebayor told Togo's Radio Frequence1. "Some players have not received their money, some have received half of it.

"Players come to me to ask about their money. It is a shame. I asked the Moroccan Federation how much they paid our Togolese FA. They told me that they paid €35,000 to President Ameyi.

"The president has the money because the Moroccan FA will not lie to me. If this continues, then no one will play for others to fill their pockets."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
