America based Sierra Leone International striker, Kei Kamara scored the only goal for his side, Kansas City to move on top of the Major League Soccer (MLS), after a 1-0 win over Colorado.
Kamara got his second goal of the season in two matches after Ryan Smith danced his way through the Colorado’s defense and set up the Sierra Leonean striker to give Wizards a hard fought win in the 48th minute.
The striker, had to rise above everyone, including his marker Conor Casey, and headed the ball over a somewhat lost Matt Pickens for the only tally the Wizards would need. According to Kamara the win was a hard fought one. He said on the clubs website “We were talking about it when we came in at halftime, saying it’s not going to be an easy win,” Kamara said after the match. “It’s not going to be a four-goal game like we did last week. It’s going to be something where we have to play dirty, we have to play hard and whatever goal we get, we have to secure that win.
According to Wizard manager, Peter Vermes, Colorados made the match much tougher due to their formation. “It was a banging game,” manager Peter Vermes said. “It’s almost like a pinball game. What they do is drop their guys off and really close off their half of the field. All of a sudden we come in there and there are 21 guys in one half of the field. That’s a tough area to play in.”
