“Fifteen years ago I decided to wear the Green, White, and Blue, and represent you on the international stage.
“I never knew what the journey would bring me, but I tell you, I would do it all over again if I had the chance.
“Today, I am finally hanging up my international jersey to focus on my club career.
“Now when those international breaks come, I will spend the time with my family, but
I will always miss the games at Siaka Stevens Stadium.
“Thank you Sierra Leone for letting your son live a dream – a dreamthat’s not only mine, but also one of many Salone people, home and abroad.
“I will continue to serve you in any way that I can. I wish Leone Stars all the best, and I cannot wait to celebrate you every step of the way.
“From the Kamara Family, we say ~ Una Tenki.”
At the AFCON finals in Cameroon, the Montreal Impact player played in all three of his country’s group games.
