15yos record-breaking goal

Murray Shaw tweeted “I have things at the back of my fridge older than Mohamed Toure! What a story and what a joy to watch”

Fox Football’s Adam Peacock said “When I was 15 I was doing a paper run”.

There was plenty of love for the brotherly duo of Mohamed and Al Hassan, his 19-year-old fellow forward.

Bas Bolyn tweeted “How good is this!? Toure (15) signing Toure’s (19) shirt. Hope more teams keep trusting & giving some of this prodigiously talented youth a crack.”

Robert Smith said “Along with injured elder brother Al Hassan – already an Olyroo – the Toure brothers promise to give the #ALeague the shot of adrenaline it needs, both have huge energy, dynamism and star power, the Reds are well set for the future with them under Dutch coach Gertjan Verbeek.”
