Rashid Iddi - Inter Allies coach

Head coach of International Allies FC, Rashid Iddi is unhappy with the performance of his players after they shared the spoils with Elmina Sharks in their opening game of the Normalisation Committee Special Competition at the Tema Stadium on Sunday.

Despite creating several chances in each half, both teams failed to find the back of the net as the game ended goalless.

In an interview, Coach Iddi bemoaned the wastefulness of his charges saying their performance did not reflect the strength they possess.

"Being the first game of the competition the players didn’t play to my expectations, knowing what they can do. Both teams created chances but we did the most, especially in the second half so we should have scored at least one goal," he told the club's website.

Coach Iddi, however, praised the visitors for their solid display at the Tema Sports Stadium which enabled them to hold his side to a 0-0 draw.

"I respect the opponents (Elmina Sharks), they played well. They did well in the first half and we did well in the second half," said the former LadyStrikers trainer.

After picking a point in the opening game, Allies will travel to Sogakope on Wednesday for a midweek fixture against the West Africa Football Academy (WAFA).
