FC Tusla Coach Optimistic Nigerian Imports Will Make Huge Impact

FC Tulsa head coach, Michael Nsien, has backed Nigerian trio Mfon Udoh, Solomon Kwambe and Raphael Ayagwa to succeed in the US second-tier United Soccer League Championship.

The former Nigeria Professional Football League stars joined Tulsa earlier in the year.

Nsien said, “The players I brought have caps with the Nigerian national team.

“Udoh is a goal scorer; he’s shown that quality consistently. Solomon has been rock steady since he’s been a professional player.

“Ayagwa is a young player with a lot of quality and experience already.”

On how well the players have adapted to football in the States,Nsien added, “It’s never easy adapting to a new country and league. With the break in play due to the pandemic, it has given the players enough time to adjust and get their footing.”

The Nigerian-American coach was a mainstay in defence at the University of Dayton, where he bagged a degree in  Communication Management before turning out for Top Major League Soccer sides including  LA Galaxy and before earning his coaching badges
