I guess I'm rooting against Togo in their group:
"Togo coach Otto Pfister has quit his job with the World Cup debutants due to an unresolved dispute over bonus payments among the squad.

"'Otto Pfister left the hotel with his co-trainer Piet Hamberg at 2220 (local time),' team doctor Joachim Schubert was quoted as saying on the website of the respected German magazine Kicker early on Saturday...

"The players had demanded 155,000 euros ($196,200) each to play in the tournament plus 30,000 each per win and 15,000 per draw. Officials from the small West African country said it was too much money."
