The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rated Musa Noah’s Kamara’s goal as among the top 10 goals in the Just concluded AFCON competition 2021.

Musa “Tombo” Kamara’s goal against Ivory Coast is a sensational strike that caught the attention of the Confederation African Football Authorities. In the said match, Sierra Leone scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser to grab a 2-2 draw against Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations in Douala. The Ivorians should have already been in front in the 12th minute after Wilfried Zaha was brought down in the box by Sierra Leone captain Umaru Bangura’s clumsy challenge.


Sierra Leone were never outclassed and got the reward they deserved early in the second half thanks to a magnificent left-footed strike from Musa Noah Kamara which brought them level with 55 minutes on the clock.

Keeper Sangare fumbled a back-header and could only watch helplessly as Kamara secured a second successive draw for the Leone Stars in Group E. Sierra Leone got two points from two games, while the Ivorians top the group with four points to their name.

Kamara was born in Tombo. After playing for AIK Freetown in 2018, he was the top scorer of the 2019 Sierra Leone National Premier League with 15 goals for champions East End Lions. He joined Swedish club Trelleborgs FF on a three-and-a-half year deal in August 2019, but cancelled his contract after a week, citing the cold weather in Sweden.He retracted that statement the following day however, and insisted that he returned to Sierra Leone to play for the national team in the upcoming World Cup qualification fixtures. He spent the 2019–20 season with Hadiya Hossana in Ethiopia before returning to Sierra Leone with East End Lions in 2020. He transferred to Bo Rangers in April 2021.

Having previously represented Sierra Leone at under-20 level, Kamara made his senior debut for Sierra Leone against Liberia on 26 July 2018.[5] He represented Sierra Leone at the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations. He did not travel to Kono to play a friendly match in November 2019 after suffering a bereavement, but received a two match international ban from the Sierra Leone Football Association after it was discovered he played a community match in Freetown during this period.[6

Kamara was called up to Sierra Leone’s squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament, which began in January 2022.He scored his first international goal with a “magnificent left-footed strike” in a 2–2 draw with Ivory Coast in Sierra Leone’s second group match on 16 January 2022. He appeared in their third group match as they were eliminated from the competition after a 1–0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea.
