Major League Soccer veteran Kei Kamara scored a brace to helped sealed Chicago Fire’s first home win of the 2023 season Saturday night.

His 24th and 36th-minute goals secured Fire a 2-1 victory over previously-undefeated Minnesota United FC at Soldier Field.

The 38-old-old first-half brace increased Kamara’s career tally of MLS regular-season goals to 142, remaining third on the league’s all-time scoring list and moving just three behind Landon Donovan (145), according to MLS records.

The league and US men’s national team legend holds second place after last playing for the LA Galaxy in 2016. Even though the 38-year-old Kamara could soon surpass Donovan, he was all about the collective when reflecting postgame.

Playing in his 18th MLS season, Kamara recorded his third of the season in his fifth appearance after a trade from CF Montréal in February.
