Traore wows selectors

Kota Kinabalu: Malian striker Koh Traore looked impressive as he showed his prowess during the finishing practice conducted by David McCreery at the Intan Campus on Tuesday afternoon.

He managed to wow the spectators with a glimpse of brilliance in his control of the ball as well as neat finishing with both his feet and head despite lack of match fitness due to the off-season.

The 22-year-old whom the Sabah Football Association has been waiting for finally arrived at the State capital for his much-awaited trial with the State M-League team on Monday morning.

The 1.83m stocky player was supposed to arrive more than a week ago but due to technical factors he was only able to fly in from Burkina Faso on Sunday.

He joined up with the Sabah squad at the Intan Campus on Monday afternoon but only did some light jog around the field.

He told Express Sports that he was just too tired after the long flight from the West African country and only managed to arrive at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport at 1am.

He said he last played for Algerian League One club, Entente Sportive SŽtif in the just concluded season.

Based on the performance on Tuesday, he is most likely to get the nod from the coaches among the several other imports that came for the trial so far if he manages to shine again in a real match play condition in the coming days.
