Adebayor focused on scoring goals, not showing off

Adebayor was Togo's biggest threat in the opener against Ivory Coast but missed a few key opportunities to score. The Tottenham striker only opened his account in a 2-0 win over Algeria on Saturday.

Rustenburg, South Africa: Emmanuel Adebayor says he is not worried about making an impression at the African Cup of Nations. He just wants to score goals.

The Togo captain has shrugged off criticism that he has yet to dazzle at the event, saying that his focus is not to show off his skills but to help his team to advance. And so far, it's going to plan.

The Tottenham striker scored his first goal of the tournament in a 2-0 win over Algeria on Saturday, a result that left Togo needing just a draw against Tunisia in their final Group D match on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals for the first time.
