"Sierra Leone's Alhassan Kamara in action in Germany"

Europa League: Kamara positive despite heavy defeat in Germany

Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara remains optimistic despite BK Häcken suffered a 4-0 hammering to RB Leipzig in Germany in the first leg second round of the Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

RB Leipzig played well under the heat as they produced an excellent display to give themselves a huge advantage going into the next tie in Gothenburg next week Thursday.

“This is football, anything can happen. We can score four or five goals,” Alhassan Kamara was quoted as saying.

Kamara, 25, who started in Germany but unable to find the net against the Bundesliga side at the Red Bull Arena thought his side played well up until the host first goal.

“We played well up until their first goal and it’s always hard away from home when you conceded first.

“It’s always difficult when you feel that you’re in the game and then suddenly they start making lots of goals and take over, it’s very difficult, ” Kamara explained.

The return match in Sweden will be played next Thursday (2 August) at 18.30.
