Kamara scores for Sierra Leone in WCQ

Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara scored for Sierra Leone on Saturday, heading home a corner kick from Sheriff Suma in the 39th minute of a 2-2 draw with group leaders Tunisia in FIFA World Cup Qualifying. The result keeps Sierra Leone's dream alive on the road to Brazil -- the Leone Stars have never competed in a World Cup -- with two games remaining in the second round of Confederation of African Football qualifying. Sierra Leone sit in second place in Group B, five points back of Tunisia for the coveted top spot to advance to the third round of qualifying, and will next face Cape Verde Islands on June 15 at Estádio da Várzea in Praia.

Kamara started and played the full 90 minutes on Saturday at National Stadium in Freetown and now has three goals for the Leone Stars in his international career, scoring for the first time since a two-goal performance in June 2012. An MLS All-Star, Kamara has led Sporting KC in scoring each of the last three seasons with 47 goals and 22 assists in 190 career MLS appearances (including playoffs).
