Sierra Leonean striker Kie Kamara and his Columbus Crew side are eyeing a first leg advantage when they host the New York Red Bulls on Sunday for the US Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern Conference finals.
The Crew will rely heavily on their ex-Sierra Leonean international whose two goals helped them get passed Montreal Impact in the playoff quarterfinals.
Already, the former Middlesbrough and Norwich forward, who has scored a total of 24 four goals (22 in the regular season & 2 in the play-off) is ready to fire more goals to help the team lift the MLS title this season.
The thirst for the title, especially after he missed the chance to lift the crown with the Crew during the 2008 season, is one of the driving force in Kamara’s goal form.
The 31-year-old, who is bound and determined to win the MLS Cup said: “I’ll give all my goals just to bring a cup here, being part of this team. I left in 2008 when they won it, so being back here this year, and to be able to win the MLS Cup, it’d be everything I asked for as a professional soccer player.”
The striker added: “It’d be amazing just to win an MLS Cup, but it’d be even more special in the fact that it’s going back around to where I first started. So if that’s how history is being written, then it’s the perfect time for me to be back in Columbus.”
