Kei Kamara is still basking in the ecstasy of the Leone Stars’ qualification for the African Cup of Nations slated for next year in Cameroon.
The Leone Stars defeated Benin Republic 1-0 at the General Lansana Conte Stadium earlier this week, to qualify for their first AFCON tournament in 26-year Afcon.
In this regard, the 36-year-old has revealed his deep level of joy over his team’s qualification and now stands a chance of featuring in the tournament before drawing the curtain on his career.
“So, I had to wait a few days to guarantee I wasn’t in bed dreaming,” Kamara wrote on Instagram.
“I have pinched myself few times to cross check. If you know how much I love Sierra Leone and football, then you will know my heart is filled with joy/tears and unselfish love for my teammates.
“Sierra Leone is going to Afcon 2022 in Cameroon after 25 years (sounds so good).
“My 12th year playing for this my national team and I just pray people tell me kids how much we went through to get here. I love you mama Salone.”
The clash between both West African nations was initially billed for March 30 at the National Stadium, Freetown, however, it did not take place owing to a Covid-19 controversy.
