Sierra Leone striker Kei Kamara and his Columbus Crew side are eyeing a first leg advantage when they host the New York Red Bulls on Sunday for the U.S Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern Conference finals.
The Crew will rely heavily on their Sierra Leonean international star whose two goals helped them get past Drogba’s Montreal Impact in the playoff quarterfinals.
The thirst for a title especially after a missed chance to lift the crown with the Crew during the 2008 season is one of the driving force in Kamara’s goal form.
The 31-year-old who is determined to win the MLS Cup said: “I’ll give all my goals just to bring a cup here, being part of this team,”
“I left in 2008 when they won it, so being back here this year, and able to win the MLS Cup, will be everything I can ask for as a professional soccer player.”
The striker added: “It’d be amazing just to win an MLS Cup, but it’d be even more special with the fact that it’s going back around to where I first started,” he says. “So if that’s how history is being written, then it’s the perfect time for me to be back in Columbus.”
