Kallon FC striker Alhaji Kamara known as ‘Andriano’ has been invited for trial by United States Major League Soccer team Portland Timbers.
This was disclosed to sierraleonefootball.com by a Sierra Leonean FIFA licensed agent Chernor Musa Jalloh who is Kamara’s agent.
According to Jalloh, the 17-year old will honour the invitation and will soon travel to the United States after securing visa to start the trial which will last for as long as Portland Timbers want.
He stated that the youngster was scouted by the Portland Timbers General Manager Gavin Wilkinson during a tournament he organised in Freetown early this month aimed at scouting talents.
Jalloh further said: “Gavin believes that Kamara has what it takes to play in the MLS and that was why they’ve invited him over for trial. They wish to see more of him during the trial in Oregon.”
He added: “He was on trial with Fredrikstad in Norway and they are said to be impressed and are closely following him.”
Kamara featured for Kallon FC in last sesaon’s Sierra Leone Premier League which ended two months ago and scored few goals. It was his first top flight league football in his career. He joined Kallon FC for second tier league team Belvic United.
Last year he played for the Sierra Leone Under-17, 20 and 23 national teams, scoring a goal against Ivory Coast Under-17 team in a CAF U-17 championship qualifying match in Freetown.
