Striker Kei Kamara opened scoring accounts for his new Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids in 3-1 pre-season victory over LA Galaxy on Saturday.

The Galaxy suffered defeat without several key players. Sebastian Lletget, Juninho, Perry Kitchen, Giovani dos Santos and Jonathan dos Santos.

The striker, who joined the Rapids in exchange for an international roster slot for the 2019 season, scored the game’s first goal in the 42nd minute, beating Galaxy defender Jorgen Skjelvik on a header.

Another headed goal for the journeyman forward – The Rapids is his fourth MLS team since 2016.

Diego Rubio, another new Rapids addition, doubles their lead in the 69th minute but the next goal was scored by Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimović downing the deficit in half with a header goal.

The Rapids completed their victory with a third goal from Diego Rubio, who was acquired from Sporting Kansas.

Kamara is the sixth all-time leading scorer in the Major League Soccer scoring 112 goals.

He has had spells with Columbus Crew, San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo, Sporting Kansas City, New England Revolution and Vancouver Whitecaps.
