Sierra Leone international and Columbus Crew’s flying striker Kei Kamara has missed out on the Major League Soccer Audi Golden Boot award despite ended up as joint top scorer.
Kei, 31 after spells at English clubs Norwich and Middlesbrough, netted 22 goals in 32 appearances for Columbus playing as the lone striker for most of the season.
But the former Boro striker who managed to stay top of the goalscoring standings with Sebastian Giovinco only losing out on the Audi Major League Soccer Golden Boot because of the assists tie-breaker.
Major League Soccer (MLS) announced that Italian forward Sebastian Giovinco has claimed the 2015 Award as the league’s top goal-scorer.
Kamara was disappointed because of his suspension for Crew SC’s final game against D.C. United. Crew’s thrashed United 5-0 and perhaps Kamara could have been on the score sheet to win the award.
Giovinco had the Golden Boot locked up because he registered 22 goals and 16 assists the most of any player in MLS’s history.
However, Kamara will be very proud after making history scoring against all the 21 current MLS clubs.
The striker also celebrated his 200th appearance in the MLS by scoring the opening goal against Philadelphia Union in April.
