Impressive Players

"Every time I came here I was impressed by the potential. The size, the athleticism, the strength of the players," Touomou told AP about Nigeria. "The one thing I knew was lacking was the skills. A lot of players were not polished yet, a lot of players lacked game experience, a lot of players lacked good coaching."
