Latics XI may have lost last night to a late goal at Barrow away but a bright spot was the performance of trialist Nouah Dicko a 19 year old Mali footballer who has been playing in France.
Nouah who scored the Latics goal shone all through the game and must have gone a long way to securing a contract with Wigan.

The rest is a translation from a French/Mali site ….
Yesterday morning, as every day or so, he made some rab ‘in front of goal, while the “real” pros returned to the locker room. Then he stretched with his buddies from the center Benedick, Gherardi, Laprevotte and others – without rushing.
Instead, smile, discreet enough, here Nouha Dicko, 18 years on the clock.
“Happy to be in group”
Racing fans are advised to get used to his round face and its profile that eerily Mamadou Niang. For he who was born in Maisons-Alfort, in a family from Mali, took his habits in the field of pros.
And even if its role is currently limited to that single wildcard offensive Nouha Dicko has already caught the eye of a lot of people.
“My goal early in the season, was to join the group and I’m glad to have happened,” said the striker, who started on foot to the Jeanne d’Arc de Maisons-Alfort, before be identified by the Racing when he was playing in the team 13 years Créteil-Lusitanos
In recent months, history has somewhat accelerated. From humble appearances at training in the Racing Pascal Janin, Dicko had a remedy.
Came into play several times National Cup holder on Saturday in France, the Franco-Malian has earned the trust of Laurent Fournier. “My goal is to be ready when the coach called me, he explains. Laurent Fournier, us young people, you learn a lot.
He knows when to be nice, but very hard. He always knows the right balance and giving opportunities to young people. “
Still, Nouha Dicko knows he has so far made only a small part of the path that could lead to a career as a professional footballer. And it was all the more aware that it has already experienced a lot of galleys.
On his arrival at the center in 2007, Dicko string of injuries and slow to show its true potential. We must wait for its final third season at the club in less than 19 years, he finally confirmed its enormous potential.
With the CFA last season, he again displays an attractive face, accumulating good performance despite the result at half of the reserve.
Niang, “a fascinating player”
But if you listen to the young player, there’s nothing to burn more than that. “I am patient, I know I have a lot of work. Be holder in National I would be happy, but there is still much work to do ‘, states and the young striker, who cites only two references: Mamadou Niang – “an exciting player” – and Ronaldo – “Brazilian eh, not the other. “
Nouha Dicko is still far from its models. But if the work and pay serious, sure he will also update its place in the sun.
