Togo's World Cup game with Switzerland will go ahead after reports in Germany that the players had been paid overdue bonuses for qualifying.
Pfister returned to the team after quitting over the bonus row
Togo skipper Jean-Paul Abalo said that unless the players received payments he claimed they were owed, the team may consider not playing the fixture.
Reports in the German media suggested that at least some of the money had been paid ahead of Monday's fixture.
Fifa intervened on Sunday to persuade Togo's players not to boycott the game.
The squad finally boarded their bus to Dortmund where the Hawks play against Switzerland on Monday.
The players had initially stayed in their Wangen base while they discussed a long-running pay dispute.
"As far as we understand the team did not want to play," a Fifa spokesman said.
"The Fifa delegate there told them it would be extremely serious. He told them to be reasonable and they were."
No team that has qualified for a World Cup finals has withdrawn from a match in the 76-year history of the event.
Any nation doing so face a heavy fine and could be banned from subsequent competitions.
The Togolese were beaten 2-1 by South Korea in their opening match on their World Cup debut.
The dispute had prompted coach Otto Pfister, a German, to walk out just before the tournament, saying it made it impossible for him to do his job.
He returned just in time for the first match.
Players from the tiny West African country have demanded US$196,300 each to play and US$38,000 for each win, half that for each draw.
But officials from the country with an average per capita income of well below US$1,000 have said those demands are too high.
