Sierra Leone international striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara came to the rescue of his Swedish club, BK Hacken in their 2-2 draw with Gefle on Sunday while his compatriot, Rodney Strasser made his Segunda Liga (Portugal’s second tier league) debut for Gil Vicente the same day.
However, the former Orebro and FC Kallon striker rescued a point for the visitors with barely 10 minutes to go. It was the 23-year-old forward’s third Allsvenskan goal for BK Hacken in six appearances since joining them from Orebro SK on a three-year-deal in July 2016.
While ‘Crespo’ Kamara enjoyed scoring a brace, former AC Milan midfielder, Rodney Strasser had a full time action on his debut as his Gil Vicente side were held to a goalless draw by Desportivo Aves.

Like Strasser, three other Sierra Leonean internationals; Ishmael Koroma, John Kamara and Alfred Sankoh all enjoyed full time action in their respective leagues over the weekend.
Koroma helped his Nyköping side secure a 3-0 home win over Enskede while John Kamara Riga FC were held to a 1-1 draw with Spartaks Jūrmala in Latvia and it was the same score line for Sanko’s Denizlispor and Yeni Malatyaspor in the Turkish second tier league.
In Slovenia, Gibrilla Woobay replaced Nigerian striker, Eleke in the 64th minute as his Olimpija side register a 1-0 home win over Gorica and in Sweden Division one, Piteå’s Sierra Leone midfielder, Ibrahim Kallay was withdrawn during the 79th minute in their 3-0 defeat to Sleipner.
