PARIS, April 6 – Togo have called on Africa Cup of Nations specialist Claude Le Roy in a bid to salvage their struggling 2017 qualification campaign.

The 68-year-old Frenchman, who has managed teams at a record eight Cup of Nations, has signed a three year contract.

He faces a tough mission to make his ninth tournament as Togo are placed third in their qualifying group on seven points, behind Tunisia and Liberia with two ties to go.

“We need a miracle to qualify for the 2017 CAN, perhaps as the best second-placed team,” Le Roy told AFP on Wednesday.

Le Roy guided Cameroon to the 1988 African title. Among the other countries he has coached at the continental championship are Senegal, Ghana, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
