Hull manager Phil Brown has revealed his shock following the gun attack on Togo's players at the African Nations Cup and wants his two players at the tournament to return to England.

Togo could withdraw their team following the incident which saw two players shot and a bus driver killed. Clubs were on Friday night contacting their players at the tournament in Angola to check on their safety, and Brown is concerned about the Hull stars on duty - Gabon striker Daniel Cousin and Nigerian midfielder Seyi Olofinjana.

Brown said in The Sun: "I am appalled. This throws a question mark against next summer's World Cup. You simply cannot put the safety of players, officials and fans at the slightest risk. That is totally unacceptable. I have two players - Daniel Cousin and Seyi Olofinjana - on duty and I want them back home here with us as quickly as possible."

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp does not have any players at the tournament but has urged organisers to consider whether it should now go ahead.

Redknapp said: "It's frightening. I agree it's worth considering calling the whole thing off. We can't just sit around and wait for the next shooting."
