Ampem Darkoa Ladies midfielder Linda Owusu Ansah says the team is not overwhelmed by their first win in the ongoing TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League.

The Ghanaian champions came from behind to beat holders AS FAR Rabat 2-1 in their opening group game following a brace from right back Comfort Yeboah.

Addressing the media on Wednesday, Linda explained that the players are ready for the clash against AS Mande and not bothered by the tournament favorite talks.

"We were happy we won against AS FAR Club but that is not the target. We are aiming for the trophy, so we continue to fight until the end" she explained.

''All we know is to win on Thursday, tournaments favorites talks don’t bother us at all’’

Quizzed about the significance of the Ghanaian fans, the former Supreme Ladies playmaker emphasized that the fans were crucial in the first game and expects a massive attendance again.

"We were happy to see the Ghanaian fans in the stands. That is why we run to them when we scored and also went to them after the game. They really boosted our morale, and I will urge them to come again as we face AS Mande tomorrow night" Linda added.

The Ghanaian and WAFU Zone B champions led by coach Joe Nana Adarkwah are making their maiden appearance in the continental competition.
