March 31, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Sierra Leonean youngster, Victor Mansaray, on Sunday made his senior debut for Seattle Sounders in their goalless draw with Dallas FC in the U.S. Major League Soccer (MLS).

It was the 18-year-old striker’s first MLS bow for Sounders since he signed for the club in November 2014 under the home-grown player contract. The forward was introduced in the 75th minute as he came off the bench to replace Chad Barrett.

Also in the MLS, veteran striker Kei Kamara played full time for Columbus Crew as they suffered a 1-2 home defeat to New York Red Bulls. Also, midfielder Michael Lahoud played full time as his Philadelphia Union side were defeated 1-0 by Chicago Fire.

In the English League One, right-back Mustapha Dumbuya made his return from injury in his side Notts County’s 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United. Dumbuya, who had been out of action for over two weeks, only played for 75 minutes before he was substituted with Blair Adams as his replacement.

In the English League Two, striker Sullay Kaikai was introduced in the 76th minute for Cambridge Untied as they suffered a 2-1 away defeat to Hartlepool.

In the Portuguese Segunda, defender Ibrahim ‘Obreh’ Kargbo played full time for Atlético CP in their 1-3 defeat at home to Feirense. The former Leone Stars captain was cautioned by the referee in the 57th minute.

In the Italian Serie B, midfielder Rodney Strasser was introduced in the 84th minute, replacing Appelt Pires in his side Livorno’s 2-0 away defeat to Bologna.
