Standing at 6 feet 4 inches tall, Belgium-based striker Adikalie Kamara will be hard to miss when Sierra Leone face Algeria in the next round of the 2016 Olympic Games qualifier.
Kamara who plays for Third Division Turnhout has been invited to make his debut for Sierra Leone in the first-leg of both sides meeting in Blida, Algeria.
Thanks to his height advantage, Kamara is not only good in the air, he is strong and difficult to handle when in possession of the ball.
In Holland, he played for Heusden for less than six months and later joined RKC Waalwijk.
“I’m delighted to have been invited to play for my country and I hope to achieve my goal by eliminating Algeria and qualify my country to Brazil Olympics 2016,” Kamara reacted to the news.
Twenty players will be traveling to Algeria on 16 July for the match, footballsierraleon.net has gathered.
The second-leg which Sierra Leone are due to host will be played at the same venue on 25 July. Sierra Leone play all of their home matches away due to the ebola outbreak in the country.
Africa’s representatives to the Olympic Games will be decided in Dakar, Senegal from November 28-December 12 where an eight-team tournament will be held.
The top three at this tournament will qualify for the Rio 2016 in Brazil.
