Adu makes his debut...

Not much to report from Adu's performance but Benfica managed to get the win over Danish powerhouse FC Copenhagen

On Tuesday, Adu began in his usual forward midfield role before alternating between the wings during the second half. He shied away from dribbling runs at the defense and mostly favored quick, short passes.

Early in the second half, he set up Oscar Cardozo, whose header was kept out by the goalie's fingertips. With 10 minutes to play, Adu tried a bicycle kick, but the shot went far wide of the goal.

A scrappy defense prevented Adu from getting any more possessions, and he rarely dented the defense.

Hopefully Adu will continue to get minutes for the Portuguese side
