Accra Hearts of Oak teen sensation Salim Adams is optimistic of his side recording a convincing victory over CI Kamsar in the 2020/21 CAF Champions League preliminary round game this weekend.

The Phobians will battle out with the Guinean top-flight outfit for a ticket to the next phase of the competition in a one-off clash at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday 

 
Samuel Boadu’s side lost 2-3 on Sunday to Premier League debutants Accra Lions with their opponents putting in a spirited second-half performance to beat the Ghanaian champions after going down on two occasions.
 
But Adams, Hearts' new recruit believes his side are in a pole position to triumph over their Guinean opponents to advance to the next stage.
 
“It’s true we (Hearts of Oak) lost against Accra Lions last Sunday but that was without a fight because our opponents really gave us a very difficult time especially in the second-half,” Adams quoted saying by Phobianews.com
 
“ We have watched video montages of Guineans. They are strong, tough and quick,” 
 
“We have to use our heads and try to keep the ball on Sunday since it is a one-off game. They (CI Kamsar) wouldn’t like it when we (Hearts) dictate the pace as evidenced in our recent games.  They prefer to play a physical game and attack using the flanks, so the key for us will be to stay patient, defend the ball at our feet and not to be sucked into the kind of game they want to play. I strongly believe We (Hearts) will edge past them and qualify to the next stage of the competition.”  he quipped.
 
Adams isn’t one of those midfielders that simply look to 'get and give,’ he’s always searching for a forward pass to open up an opponent.
 
His exquisite ball control in tight spaces and creative instincts enable him to do this on a frequent basis.
 
The 18-year-old was a member of the Black Satellites team that won the AFCON U-20 Championship in Benin last year.
