Sierra Leonean defender, Ibrahim Marcel Koroma scored his first goal of the season in his side Varberg BOIS 2-3 away win over IK Sirius FK in the Swedish Superettan League.
Ali Sinan Ayranci put the away side ahead in 12 minutes but the home team leveled things up in the 44 minutes through Moses Ogbu, but the Sierra Leone international gave the visitors the lead again just five minutes after the break.
“We got the perfect start with an early goal but then took over Sirius and 1-1 was fair in half. Koroma makes a neat nickmål and a beautiful shot of Tranberg gives us a lead. After their 3-2 goals the punishment they create any clear scoring opportunities last half hour,” said Jorgen Wålemark at the press conference after the game
Meanwhile, Sierra Leonean striker, Lansana Kamara, a.k.a. Kalusha, came to the rescue of his Swedish league one club, Umeå FC when his 19 minutes header earned them a 1-1 draw in their league opener against Dalkurd FF.
Kamara, who joined Umeå on-loan from FC Kallon, was very instrumental for Coach Johan Sandahl’s side especially when Ahmed Awad gave the visitors an early lead. Kamara, who played full-time, grabbed the point for his new side from a corner kick by Jens Stig Dahl as he nodded the ball in.
His countryman, Mohamed Kamanor, who also joined the team on loan from FC Kallon, came in at the 62nd minute, replacing Mattias Lidberg. Meanwhile, the coach told the club’s official website that they are not satisfied with their performance but will work harder to improve on their opening day performance.
“We cannot be satisfied with our own performance. We met an unblemished and very talented Dalkurd but will work hard this week to perform better than are now.
Another Sierra Leonean who was on the score sheet in the same league was midfielder Ibrahim Kallay. Kallay scored one of the four goals for his side IFK Lulea as they defeated IF Sylvia 4-0 at home.
