A bonus payments row is threatening to derail Togo's preparations for their maiden World Cup appearance.
Togo players made a similar demand before January's Nations Cup
Togolese FA president Rock Gnassingbe has revealed that national team members are refusing to play in Germany unless they are awarded substantial bonuses.
Gnassingbe said the footballers are demanding £100,000 each to take part.
"These amounts are too high for the country's financial standing," said Gnassingbe, who lands in Germany on Tuesday to hold talks with the squad.
In addition to the appearance bonuses, the players also want to be paid US$40,000 (£20,000) for each win and US$20,000 (£10,000) for a draw.
The players made similar threats just before their winless campaign at January's African Cup of Nations.
These latest demands have been received with a mixture of sadness and anger by Hawks fans in Togo.
Togo play their first ever match at the World Cup finals when they take on South Korea on 13 June.
They then play Switzerland and former colonial masters France.
