Bittersweet Norwich City debut for Abu Kamara

The youngster was pleased after he made his senior Norwich City debut in their 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United in the English Championship on Saturday.

Abu Kamara, 19, looked almost shocked when called back from his warm-up before replacing Teemu Pukki in the 70th minute of the Canaries’ 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United at Carrow Road on Saturday for his senior debut.

“I’ve been here since the age of ten, so I’ve been dreaming of this moment my whole life, really,” Kamara said in his post-match Interview.

“The day has come today, so I’m happy about that. I came into this game the same way that I come into every game – with a positive mindset and hoping that I get on. Luckily today, the boss put me on the pitch.

“I just want to show what I can do to the fans, get some goals and earn my spot in the team.”

Kamara’s introduction was designed to inject City’s toothless attack with some youthful energy, and his determination to make an impact throughout his cameo was visible.

But Kamara was unable to provide a spark in a City side that only recorded one shot on target in the game, which came through Marquinhos in the 92nd minute.

In April 2022, Kamara was on the bench for the first team’s Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
