Leone Stars’ Kamara Comes Out of Retirement to Face Super Eagles

KEI KAMARA rescinded his decision to quit international football, so he could be part of Leone Stars’ squad when Sierra Leone face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Friday.


The former Norwich City and Middlesbrough striker had announced his retirement from international soccer a day before the Leone Stars battled Lesotho in a 1-1 draw for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Freetown.

“I can tell you it has not been easy. During this year of being on the outside watching and listening, I can tell you it hasn’t been easy.

“In the past few months I have heard some wonderful conversations with newly appointed head coach John Keister about his vision for the national team, and they’re remarkable.

“I’m very honoured to be considered by Coach Keister as someone that could impact the team. To be included on the roster for the upcoming games is an invitation I have accepted.

“I’m very excited to wave the green, white and blue flag and will proudly represent my country. I’ll do what I have always done- play my heart out for mama Sierra Leone. I look forward to joining the team in the quest for qualification.”
