Toussaint Natama (born 31 October 1982) is a former Burkinabé international football player.


Born in the Republic of Upper Volta, Natama began playing football with local side Étoile Filante Ouagadougou. He joined Egyptian Premier League side Al-Ittihad Alexandria before moving to Belgium in 2001, where he signed a contract with Belgian Pro League side K.V.C. Westerlo.[1]

Natama was selected to play for the Burkinabé side that would compete in the 2004 African Nations Cup finals in Tunisia, but was injured in a pre-tournament friendly against Guinea in Marseille, France. The injury left him in a coma for two weeks and with left-side paralysis that ended his football playing career.[1]
