Sierra Leone international striker, Kei Kamara continues his exceptional form in front of the goal this season as he fired Columbus Crew to the U.S Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern Conference final.
The former Norwich and Middlesbrough forward scored twice, missed a penalty for the Crew but defeated Didier Drogba’s Montreal Impact 3-1 at Mapfre Stadium.
Reacting after the win while describing his feelings after scoring the all-important goal, the striker told mlssoccer.com: “It went in and I was running to the side to celebrate with the fans and I didn’t see any of my teammates around me, so I thought something went wrong – I thought the ref called something,” said Kamara, with a laugh. “[Then] I felt people just jumping on me. It was a relief. You can’t have it any other way. That’s just how the game is supposed to go, right there. It was a packed house. I enjoyed every minute of that.”
