Career[edit]

France[edit]

Camara began his career with his hometown club, Olympique Noisy-le-Sec, appearing in 67 matches and scoring 1 goal. He signed his first full professional contract with Olympique de Marseille in 2006; however, after a few months with the Provence club, he was unable to overtake incumbent starter Habib Beye and in search of playing time, he signed a three-year contract with Ligue 2 club SC Bastia, playing primarily as a rightback or centerback. He had his most productive season during the 2008–09 Ligue 2 season with 26 appearances and three goals. He scored his first goal as a professional on 22 February 2008, against Libourne Saint-Seurin. The following season he fell out of favor with the club and terminated his contract with Bastia on 18 January 2010.

Canada[edit]

On 7 February 2011, Camara signed with the Montreal Impact of the North American Soccer League.[1] In his first season with Montreal Camara appeared in 22 league matches and scored 2 goals as he was named the clubs most valuable player.[2] After a successful first season with Montreal, in which he was regarded as one of the top players in the North American Soccer League, Camara re-signed with Montreal Impact on 11 October 2011 for the clubs' inaugural 2012 season in Major League Soccer.[3] On 29 May 2013 he scored the cup-winning goal for the Montreal Impact in the Canadian Championship final against the Vancouver Whitecaps; this goal allowed the Montreal Impact to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League for the second time in the team's history. On 4 June 2014, he won his second Canadian Championship against Toronto FC.
