Alhassan Crespo Kamara scored his first goal on his return to football action on Monday night after 19 months out.

His last match was in December 2018 while playing for Panetolikos where he was forced off the pitch after a damaged to his knee.

The striker, who joined Swedish Superettan side Halmstad Boldklub in March, finally featured for the HBK U21 side against IS Halmia at the Örjans Vall.

The experienced striker got to show his class when he was pulled down and scored the penalty that was awarded in 68 minutes.

His goal against Halmia from the spot was his first goal for almost two years.

Kamara said he was delighted because he was told he has only a 10% chance of playing football again following a severe injury sustained in December 2018 in the Greece top-flight. 

“It felt great and a little strange during the first half. I started to feel a little flow, so it felt good. But I know I have a lot to learn about how HBK plays.”

“I played for 70 minutes, and everything went well. The game ended 1-1 for now, I am taking it one game at a time,” He told FSL news.

The former Orebro striker added, “It was a long time since I scored.”
