“I am satisfied because I did not play this game with ten of my first team players.

“I am talking about extremely outstanding players who we left behind in Cairo.

“This game against Enyimba was prosecuted by reserve players.

“Some of the players in question are injured. The others have to serve in the military in Egypt,” Toulan told supersport.com.

The Smouha coach then identified two Enyimba players as “truly special” adding that his charges will seek to nullify the threat they pose ahead of the return leg in Egypt.
