Liberia booked their place in the second round of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying despite a 1-0 loss to Sierra Leone at Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown on Sunday.
The hosts had a chance to win the tie in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage-time, but 18-year-old goalkeeper Ashley Williams saved Umaru Bangura’s penalty.
Following a 3-1 win for Liberia in Paynesville earlier this week, there was still a lot to play for in the Sierra Leone capital.
Kamara fired the Leone Stars back in front in the 55th minute; fighting off his man from a hopeful punt forward before guiding the ball past an onrushing Williams.
Chances remained few and far between on a heavy pitch in wet conditions, but Sierra Leone were gifted a chance to win the match on aggregate with the final kick of the game following a foul in the area.
Bangura stepped up to the spot, but Williams guessed the right way to deny the hosts a place in the next round.
