Ebou Adams talks about his experience with the Gambian national team
Shrewsbury Town midfielder Ebou Adams was delighted to spend a week with the Gambian national team during the recent international break.
Adams, who qualifies for Gambia through his parents, was part of a training camp based in Marrakesh in Morocco.
He also made his first appearance for Gambia during the break and admitted that it was a great experience.
“It was a good experience, good to meet some of the Gambian players and obviously get used to international football”, Adams told ShrewsWeb.
“It was very different. There are different standards with international football, so it’s a good experience for me. It’s added to my CV and hopefully improved me as a player.
“They train differently as well and it’s obviously good to learn different tactics because they sit back more and take the pressure on, so that’s different and it’s good for me to learn.”
Adams came on as a second-half substitute in the game against Morocco CHAN and hopes that he did enough to be called into the squad for the next competitive fixture in March.
“It was good to make my debut”, said Ebou.
“That was the main thing and it’s obviously good for the manager to know how I am and how I am around my teammates. I think he was impressed with how I played, so hopefully next time he will call me up again.
“There’s some good players there anyway, so hopefully we can be a stronger team and take them to go further than they have been, which is a target for the country.”
