EPL side Norwich City are picking up fans in Sierra Leone and the native of the war-torn nation, Kei Kamara, of South Bay high school and Cal State Dominguez Hills renown, is doing the same in England after two brief, but galvanizing performances for the top tier club.
The Canaries play EPL leaders Manchester United this weekend (live at 7 a.m. Saturday on ESPN2) and Kamara’s performance for Sporting Kansas City against the Red Devils in a friendly a couple of years ago is among the local media’s talking points ahead of the big game.
Kamara is still expected to come off the bench Saturday as he works his way toward match fitness, despite the hype, but he sounds like he’s thoroughly enjoying the limelight so far:
It’s really a Dream/Blessing to be on a train in United Kingdom and seeing someone reading an article bout u in the newspaper. #butterflies
