Kamara scored an 111th-minute winner in extra-time of his side's Eastern Conference semi-final against Montreal Impact, who had Chelsea legend Didier Drogba leading their attack.

The Canadian side arrived in Columbus with a 2-1 lead from the first leg but Kamara levelled the aggregate score in just the fourth minute of Sunday night's match.

A goal apiece saw the match go to extra-time with the aggregate score locked at 3-3, with Kamara having missed a penalty but making up for it with an excellent headed winner, to spark wild celebrations in Ohio.

The 31-year-old former Canaries loan forward was runner-up for the MLS Golden Boot award this season, with 22 goals, but two further goals have taken Columbus into the Eastern Conference Championship.
