Kei Kamara made his Chicago Fire debut in a 1-1 draw at home against New York City FC at Soldier Field on Sunday as he became the only player in Major League Soccer (MLS) history to feature for ten different teams.
Fabian Herbers pounded a deflected strike past goalkeeper Luis Barraza in the 75th minute from Kamara’s header as he helped Chicago Fire salvage a 1-1 tie with visiting New York City FC on Saturday night.
The visitor took the lead through Gabriel Pereira in the 39th minute when he guided a low, left-footed strike into the bottom left corner beyond Spencer Richey’s dive.
Kei Kamara came on at halftime after he arrived from Montreal in a trade earlier this week.
Chicago Fire’s next outing in the MLS is away to Philadelphia Union next Saturday.
