Germany 2006 was Togo's first and only appearance at the World Cup. They lost all of their three games and did not progress past the group stage.
- Togo's first attempt at qualifying came in the preliminary qualifiers to the 1974 tournament, but they have yet to threaten the big guns for a place at the World Cup finals. Congo ended their first shot at qualifying with Guinea and Niger following suit in later years.
- Togo lost all their preliminary matches in the contest for places at the 1994 FIFA World Cup USA, although they did manage a win over Zimbabwe four years later and beat Zambia and Libya in the 2002 qualifying tournament, in a group that was won by Cameroon.
- The greatest result in Togo's history came in the 1998 African Cup of Nations, a 2-1 triumph over four-times champions Ghana which saw the fancied nation eliminated from the tournament. Following a 1-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea in the first leg of their preliminary qualifier for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Togo came back to win the return 2-0 and progress to the next round.
