Kamara apologised to the nation and the FA over the weekend on different media institutions, stating: “My message was not directly to the FA but if it go against them then I’m sorry, I really want to represents my country as I am now aged and who knows this might be my last and final representation for Sierra Leone”.
Stakes in matches between Liberia and Sa Leone are very high, like Arsenal /Liverpool / Man. City Vs. Man. United soccer clashes. No supporter involved in this axis wants to see his team lose to the other.
Sierra Leoneans living in Liberia preferred to lose to Guinea and Ivory Coast than to Liberia because of the bitter rivalry between Sierra Leone and the Liberians.
Even at club international level, matches between Liberia and Sierra Leone are humongous and bruising. Mighty Blackpool, East End Lions, Fisheries and Real Republicans can tell you a mouthful. Sierra Leone Football authorities should therefore buck up and start serious preparation for the forthcoming World Cup encounters with Liberia.
It is not only our soccer rivalry with Liberia that is at stake. Our national pride is also important as it is high time that Sierra Leone began making her mark in international football.
There is no reason for us to be underdogs because we have talented footballers making tremendous impact at home and on the international stage and it is delightful news this morning that the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has invited 18 players from abroad to join the training.
Leone Stars’ biggest determination should be to beat Liberia in the very first leg of the World Cup at the Samuel Doe Sports Stadium in Monrovia next month, so that the Second leg at the Siaka Stevens Stadium will be a formality.
In previous competitions lately, Leone Stars have put up brave and brilliant performances against more powerful African nations like Cameroon, Egypt, South Africa, D.R. Congo etc. and there is no reason why they cannot do the same against Liberia.
