use a little sand paper on the inside plastic first, give the glue something to grab onto in the bond.

ok, when it comes to adhesives im your man....

like everyone else said, you want to use a fine grit sandpaper(ide use 200 grit) and lightly sand the surface, then ide clean the surface with some rubbing alcohol...once that dries, apply a thin layer of rubber cement to both surfaces(the foam and the plastic) but dont let them touch just yet....give that an hour or two to dry...then apply another thin layer to both surfaces and hold them together for several min. until the glue begins to set up....then let the glue cure for 24Hrs and you should be all set.
