We are still strong - Adams



The recent departure of some of the team's best players has not weakened Edubiase, according to the Communications Director of the side. The Bekwai side barely pipped Diables Noir 1-0 on Sunday.

Abdul Salam Adams insists that the team is capable of challenging for honours in the Caf Confederations Cup despite the recent departure of Emmanuel Baffour, Mumuni Abubakar and Frank Sarfo Gyamfi.

"We lost just three players and it is understandable to say that they were probably the heart beat of the team but we brought inequally good replacements. Players like Samed Oppong, Samir Lamine and a few others have come in to fill the positions," he told Citi FM.

The team's showing was characterized by tetchy finishing and nervy displays poor finishing and some have attributed this to the absence of the key men. However, Salam feels the fact that it was the team's first outing played a role.

"Someone mentioned that it was due to stage fright and it is partly true. We will overcome it as we get more experienced. We are still a strong and viable side capable of rising to the occasion at every moment," he noted.

Edubiase now have to prepare for the team’s return leg in two weeks. "We have to intensify our preparation and forget the fact that we are going into the second leg as victors. We should have a winning mentality away from home and I am sure we will do well."

By virtue of their title as FA Cup holders, New Edubiase are representing Ghana for the first time in African competition.
