May 19, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.
Sierra Leone defender Ishmael ‘Jorjor’ Koroma was in a delightful mood over the weekend as his Nyköping side grabbed their first win of the season, thanks to goals from Mahmoud Eid and Emil Hedsén.
The Sierra Leonean youngster, who played full time in their 2-0 home win over Piteå in the Swedish first division league, posted on his Facebook page: “Finally got 3 points; good job today guys”.
In an exclusive interview with Concord Sports, Koroma said the win has restored confidence and belief in the squad.
“I’m just happy for the victory and we hope to build on this and keep on winning because our last five games were all draws,” he said.
Whilst Koroma was on the winning side, his compatriot Ibrahim Kallay saw his IFK Lulea side losing 1-3 at home to Akropolis in the same division.
In the U.S. Major League Soccer (MLS), striker Kei Kamara failed to find the net on Saturday after his Columbus Crew side suffered a 2-0 away defeat to San Jose Earthquakes. The Sierra Leone international was substituted in the 83rd minute.
In the Israeli topflight, midfielder Mohamed ‘Medo’ Kamara helped Maccabi Haifa to a 4-0 win over Hapoel Be’er.
In Italy, midfielder Rodney Strasser was an unused sub in Livorno’s 1-1 draw with Vicenza in the Italian Serie B.
