The veteran striker added another goal to his 22/23 tally as he expertly headed home the Fire’s only goal of the match. His experience was evident when he made a decisive diagonal run across the box to meet Arnaud Souquet’s cross for the goal.
Not only did Kamara give the Fire the lead for the majority of the match, but was again pivotal to the Fire going forward with his holdup play. Especially in the first half, Kamara found himself involved in lots of quick passing moves that were the key to the Fire’s attacking success and first-half domination. The imposing striker also made his physical presence felt throughout the match as the Red Bulls’ back 3 struggled to cope with his raw strength and size.
Although he played the duration of the match, it was evident that the 38-year-old was in need of a sub in the final stages of the match. However, this is due to Kamara’s continual pestering of the Red Bulls’ backline. His work rate in both attack and defense hardly reflected his age as he certainly left it all out on the field for Chicago tonight.
