Sierra Leone Sports: ”Kei Kamara is accomplished goal soccer in MLS,” Ibrahim Sesay

One of Sierra Leone’s football administrators, Ibrahim Sesay, said that Kei Kamara is accomplished goal scorer in MLS, Kamara was acquired by Vancouver Whitecaps FC in December 2017 via trade from New England Revolution in exchange for a first-round MLS Super Draft pick in 2019 and a conditional second-round pick in 2020.
He said before his move to Vancouver, Kamara’s 11 seasons of prior MLS experience began as an MLS Super Draft selection with then-Columbus Crew in 2006.
His career has included stops with San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo, Kansas City Wizards/Sporting Kansas City, a return to Columbus, and most recently, with New England.
He revealed that Kamara arrived in Vancouver with a resume that includes 103 goals and 39 assists in 246 starts and 298 appearances in his MLS career, including playoffs, becoming only the 12th player in league history to eclipse the century mark in goals. In 2017, Kamara led New England with 12 goals, including four game-winners, tied for ninth in the league, in addition to his five assists. Kamara finished the 2017 season ranked 10th all-time in goals in league play, second among all active players, and third all-time in shots. A two-time MLS All-Star, he led MLS in total goals, including playoffs, with 26 in 2015. On the same year, he was a finalist for the MLS Most Valuable Player award and was named to the MLS Best XI while leading Columbus to a runner-up finish in the MLS Cup.
Ishmeal Conteh said that in 2013, Kamara made 11 appearances while on loan with Norwich City FC in the English Premier League and became the first player from Sierra Leone to score in the English Premier League. Outside of MLS, Kamara also played one season with English Football League Championship club Middlesbrough FC, scoring four goals in 16 starts and 25 appearances in the 2013-14 seasons.
Kamara has over 20 international appearances for Sierra Leone, having served as captain. He has tallied five goals for the Leone Stars as of November 2017.
