Making his second, start for the Fire, Kamara proved his worth and proved to his manager why he should be the Fire’s first-choice striker. The 38-year-old scored a first-half brace that would ultimately secure the Fire all 3 points.
Not only was he exceptional in front of goal, but his hold-up play was also superb. His ability to hold the ball up practically kickstarted all of the Fire’s most promising moves going forward and was essential to the Fire’s dominance in attacking areas: especially in the first half.
“Outside of the goals, what I like about the way I played, I helped the team. Really, it’s an important game, when the coach told me that I was going to be playing up top, I knew the backline, they’re strong, and I knew that I have to be a body to be an outlet for the guy. So when the ball comes forward, I have to hold it, lay it off. And it’ll just be a problem for as much as I can do during the game, because I knew I wasn’t gonna be able to go the whole game. So just do as much as I could do.”
