Kei Kamara scored the winner as Vancouver Whitecaps boosted their playoff hopes with a crucial road victory against rivals Toronto FC at BMO Field on Saturday afternoon.
“A great road victory for us and that’s three points closer to the playoffs for us. I am very happy for the winner it was a great goal created by Jordan,” told Football Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leone international is expected to join Leone Stars camp latest by Tuesday despite the uncertainty surrounding Sierra Leone’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Ghana.
“The Sierra Leone Football Association has informed us about an impending meeting with the government of Sierra Leone, regarding the way forward on Monday, October 8, 2018. Meanwhile, the Leone Stars are in camp preparing for the Match in Kumasi,” Ghana Normalization Committee stated in a statement.
However, the win puts the ‘Caps within three points of Real Salt Lake for the sixth and final playoff position.
The visitors raced to an early lead when Teibert converted off some pinpoint passing between Alphonso Davies and Yordy Reyna in the fourth minute, giving the Ontario-born midfielder his first MLS goal since 2013.
Toronto’s Jozy Altidore level it for the home side from a spot kick in the 73rd minute, after the ‘Caps were whistled for a handball inside the box on substitute Jay Chapman’s attempt.
Kamara, who will be leading the Leone Stars attack in Kumasi, tallied his sixth game-winner of the season from a smart counter-attack set up by Reyna and substitute Jordon Mutch.
His winner against Toronto was his 14th of the season.
Whitecaps FC will host Sporting Kansas City at BC Place on Wednesday, October 17 after the FIFA international break.
A win will see them climb further up the playoff ladder.
