Emmanuel Adebayor retired from international football with Togo on this day in 2010 in the wake of a fatal gun attack.
The decision came after three months after a Togo team bus was fired upon during the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.
Three people were killed – the bus driver, an assistant coach and a press officer – when gunmen opened fire, with nine others injured.
“I have weighed up my feelings in the weeks and months since the attack, and I am still haunted by the events I witnessed on that horrible afternoon on the Togo team bus.”
Togo were initially given a four-year ban by the Confederation of African Football after withdrawing from the competition but the suspension was eventually lifted by FIFA.
Four more years at Spurs followed before a brief spell at Crystal Palace and then time in Turkey with Istanbul Basaksehir and Kayserispor. The 39-year-old retired last month.
