Togo goalkeeper Obilale set to return to France

Togo goalkeeper Kodjovi Obilale will return to France after being treated in a South African hospital for gunshot wounds he received when the team's bus was ambushed in Angola in January.

Obilale underwent surgery in Johannesburg after being evacuated from Angola following the attack on the bus carrying the national team to the African Nations Cup, and medical director of health assistance company international SOS, Fraser Lamond, revealed that the goalkeeper will now return to France.

"The bills have been paid and there are already plans afoot to repatriate the player back to France, where he will continue to receive health care," Lamond said.

Two members of Togo's soccer delegation and the bus driver were killed when gunmen opened fire, with a total of seven people were injured in the attack, which was claimed by the FLEC, a rebel separatist group fighting in the Angolan province of Cabinda.

Obilale, Togo's reserve goalkeeper who plays for French fourth division side Pontivy, was shot in the back and abdomen.

The Togolese government recalled the team for three days of mourning after the attack, and the country was later banned from the next two African Nations Cups for withdrawing their team.
