Ivorian international Kolo Toure has sounded a note of warning to African champion, Nigeria ahead of the 2014 Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil. Toure is full of respect for one of Nigeria’s group opponents at the finals, Bosnia-Herzegovina, which he described as a side full of “top players”.
“Bosnia have top players. Emir Spahic will be one of the better defenders at the World Cup,” Toure said during the post-match conference after the Ivorians lost 1-2 to Bosnia-Herzegovina in a friendly international decided at Edward Jones Dome on May 30.
Toure’s international teammate, Didier Drogba, went a step further to describe the Dragons as “very dangerous team with star players.”
“(Bosnia-Herzegovina) have yet to show their best at the World Cup. It’s a very dangerous team with star players,” he said.
Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina will go head to head in a Group F game at the 2014 World Cup on June 21 at Arena Pantanal, Cuiabá.
