Kei Kamara makes LAFC debut in defeat to Ex-club Rapids

Kei Kamara made his debut for Los Angeles in a Major League Soccer match against the ex-club Colorado Rapids on Saturday afternoon at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. 

Kamara signed for the Rapids for the 2024 season with an option for 2025. He was introduced in the 87th minute, just before Rapid’s third goal in the 89th minute.

LAFC lost 3-2 to the Rapids despite goals from Eduard Atuesta and David Martinez. Djordje Mihailovic, who assisted on Colorado’s opening goal, scored twice in the final 10 minutes to secure the victory for the Rapids.

Although LAFC had not won in Colorado since their inaugural 2018 season, they took the lead in the 8th minute when Atuesta scored his second goal in as many games.

The Colombian midfielder received a short pass from Timothy Tillman near the corner of the box, dribbled past a Rapids’ defender, and curled a right-footed shot inside the far post to give his team the lead.

However, the Rapids fought back and scored three goals, with Mihailovic leading the charge with two late goals to secure the win.

LAFC’s next MLS outing is on Saturday, April 6, when the club hosts the LA Galaxy at BMO Stadium.
