- Sierra Leone played a 4-4 draw against Nigeria after coming from four goals down to get a point
Sierra Leone superstar Kei Kamara has described his team's remarkable 4-4 draw against Nigeria as historic.
Nigeria looked home and dry just after 29 minutes as they rushed to a commanding 4-0 lead against their opponent.
But Sierra Leone pulled one back through Kwame Quee just before the first half and went on to score three more in the final 18 minutes of the game thanks to a brace from Al-Hadji Kamara and another strike from Mustapha Bundu.
Speaking exclusively to Legit.ng after the game, Kei Kamara who had shared a video of him complaining about the mattress and pillow in his Benin hotel room, was happy with his team's performance.
According to the Minnesota United star, Sierra Leone have written their name in the history books.
"I don't have feelings personally right now because it is unbelievable. This is Nigeria we are talking about, the Super Eagles, they call them that for a reason. They are one of the best teams in Africa, we are just Sierra Leone.
"I'm so proud of my team, proud of the boys. It is amazing for the country and for Sierra Leoneans all over the world and it shows that one should never give up. To get a result like this away from home against Nigeria is part of history."
"This is not the happiest day of my life but it is one of. The happiest day of my life is me having kids. In football, this is history and I'm proud to be part of it. It is not done yet, we have to go home and we have to do well. Because if we can get a result in Nigeria, they (Super Eagles) can get a result in Sierra Leone," he told Legit.ng.
When asked what Coach John Keister's message was to his players at half time, Kamara had this to say: "That's for the coach to reveal but all I can say is that we copied the information really well because we went out there and believed what the coach said and every player out there today made the difference. For us it is positive and to go back home with this positivity is good for our football, we deserve it.
"We are building, it is one game at a time. We came here with really no expectation other than to make history and we did just that. Look at the Nigerian players, these are players playing in top leagues and if we can fight like this, it gives us hope for the next game. We have to respect Nigeria again when they come to Sierra Leone but we have to compete," he told Legit.ng
On his earlier viral video, Kamara told Legit.ng: "The issue hasn't been resolved but I'm enjoying it now. I played 90 minutes today at 36 years of age and I'm still going. It's now time to rest well and get ready for the next game (laughs)."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Victor Osimhen had to be stretched off as he screamed in pain after suffering a wrist injury during Nigeria's 4-4 against Sierra Leone in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The Napoli striker who scored Nigeria’s second goal in the game had to be replaced by Paul Onuachu in the 78th minute of the game after picking up what looks like a terrible injury.
It was gathered that the 21-year-old was challenging one of the Leone Stars defenders when he fell awkwardly on his wrist.
He was quickly surrounded by his teammates who alongside the referee signalled the medics into the pitch.
