The former Apollon Smyrni defensive midfielder, Kamara 26 is delighted to represent his country.

He is part of head Coach Atto Mensah’s 20-man squad.

With just two caps for Sierra Leone in the 2013 World Cup qualifiers 8th and 15 June against Tunisia and Cape Verde respectively, Kamara is now looking forward to the rest of the qualifiers.

He said: “I am relishing the prospect of taking on Cameroon in their back-yard, and is always a great feeling caring national flag.

“We must go their looking for a positive outcome to qualify, we can win anything is possible in football on the day. But let wait and see what happens against a difficult team like Cameroon.

“We have lost our first two games but the team played well, especially in the first half. We need to improve our game in the second half, but I can understand the difficulties my national team mates encounter during the last two qualifiers, especially to and from DR Congo.

“Playing at home will have been the best option whilst chasing qualification, but the present situation we have been forced to play on neutral ground, is difficult no doubts.

He added: “So far am happy with my new club we are doing well; a great coach he was my former coach and am doing my best to help PAS Lamia gain promotion again next season.”

The Leone Stars of Sierra Leone are bottom of Group D in the ongoing African Nations Cup qualifiers and any defeat will leave them with no chance of making the final tournament in Morocco 2015 next year.
