  • Keshla, the Azerbaijan top-tier side failed to progress at home after a 5-4 penalty defeat at the Shafa Stadium in Baku on Thursday 27th August. 

Sierra Leone International John Kamara, who played the full throttle of the first round Europa League qualifier, was left disappointed.

Due to Covid-19, all qualifying matches were decided in one leg.

Both teams ended the contest with 10 men after a barren draw before the penalty decider.”

It was a disappointing night because when you play at home in any competition fans will expect a win,” Kamara to FSL news.

“Losing on penalties obviously a tough defeat to take especially at home. However, we failed to capitalise on home advantage.”

Kamara played a vital role to helped the two-time Azerbaijan champions to a third place in finish last season to compete in the UEFA Europa League.
