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 has 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.
