WC 2006 Match Chat: Togo vs. Switzerland, 6 am PT

Live from Dortmund!

Or so we hope...

On Sunday, Togo's players were threatening to boycott this match over a pay dispute. But it appears that FIFA has averted that. Mainly by telling the Togolese players that if they don't play, they're in a world of hurt. And hell hath no fury than a ticked off Sepp Blatter.

Togo lost its opener to Korea 2-1 while the Swiss played a scoreless draw with France. Korea sits atop Group G with four points and if the Swiss need a win badly. Preferably by at least two goals. If that were the case, the Swiss would be able to clinch a spot in the second round with a draw against Korea, if my math is right.

Group G is definitely not the Group of Death.

Togo, Salut à toi, pays de nos aïeux

Carlos Amarilla is an appopriate name for a referee known for giving out a lot of yellow cards.

So with Togo being denied a PK there does that mean they've joined the elite in international soccer?

Is that some music playing there or did the PA announcer in the stadium have a basso profundo?
