Sierra Leone striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara had an eventful Monday night, scoring twice in the first half to whip Atvidaberg away from home in the Swedish Allsvenskan.
Six goals from four matches in August is very impressive from the Leone Stars striker. Kamara 21 is expected in the Sierra Leone squad of foreign based players for the AFCON group stage against Ivory Coast and DR Congo listed for next month.
The former AIK striker had a fine all round match maintaining his 100% goal record since his return from injury.
Kamara dispatched his first, early in the 5th minute – his second goal of the night in the 44th minute from the centre of the penalty area and was off in the 77th minutes for D Gustavsson.
Kamara after helping Orebro defeat Atvidaberg told Football Sierra Leone that he is feeling very good and hope to recapture his club form while on national duty.
“I am feeling very good, scoring for my club at the moment. I want to help my country reach the African Nations Cup in Morocco.
“I certainly have more to give at national level and hope to stay injury free”.
In another development, another Sierra Leonean player, David Simbo, is on his way to Egypt.
The Al Hilal defender said on Saturday that top Egyptian clubs are targeting his service after his impressive form in the African Champions’ League group stage.
He was part of the Al Hilal side that defeated the Cairo giant Zamalek 2-1 on Friday in their final Group stage encounter of the African Champions League, as both teams exited the competition.
But the Former Mighty Blackpool defender is not sure about any deal, as he is still under contract with Al Hilal.
A deal is expected before the end of their transfer window this month.
The Sierra Leone defender aged 24 is enjoying some of his best football since joining the Sudanese Champions.
Al Hilal continental campaign comes to an end with seven points in third place ahead of Zamalek in Group A.
Talking to Awoko sports, Simbo said. “Our win against Zamalek is a well-deserved victory. Am proud of my team mates and I must say am enjoying my football once again, taking on three of the continent’s big teams was a good experience for me”
“This competition has improved me as a player and I hope to keep improving my football. Am disappointed we cannot make it through the next stage of the competition, but we exit the competition on a positive note”, he noted.
Meanwhile, the two teams from Congo, TP Mezembe and AS Vita are through to the competition semi-finals.
