Ebou Adams: Gambia experience can only benefit me

20 November 2017

Ebou Adams says his maiden involvement in international football will serve his development well going forward.

That was followed by a first appearance for the nation when he featured as a second half substitute in a match against Morocco.

Adams, who is currently on loan at Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury Town, told their official website: "It was a good experience.

"It was good to meet some of the Gambian players and obviously get used to international football, although it was very different.

"There are different standards with international football, so it's added to my CV and hopefully improved me as a player. 

"They train differently too and it’s obviously good to learn different tactics because they sit back more and take the pressure on. That's different and good for me to learn."

Having made his breakthrough, the 21-year-old is now targeting a place in Gambia's squad for their next competitive fixture in March.

"It was good to make my debut, that was the main thing," he explained.

“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 are some good players there, so hopefully we can be a stronger team and take them further than they have been. That's a target for the country."
