Alusine Kamara (born 5 September 1989), nicknamed 'Baggio', is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Syrianska FC in the Swedish Allsvenskan.

Life and career[edit]

Kamara played for Freetown club FC Kallon, whom he represented in the Sierra Leone National Premier League and the African Champions League.[1] In 2011, he agreed a loan move to Swedish Division 1 Södra (third tier) side Motala AIF, where he scored six goals in 13 appearances.[2]

Following a summer 2011 trial with recently promoted Allsvenskan side Syrianska FC, Kamara agreed a transfer to — and a three and a half year contract with — the top tier club on 10 August 2011.[2][3] He made his first Allsvenskan start a few days later in a 3-0 defeat to Mjällby AIF.[4][5]

Kamara also plays international football for Sierra Leone. His debut came in a February 2011 friendly match 2-1 defeat against Nigeria in Lagos.[6][7] He was also called up by Sierra Leone's Swedish manager Lars Olof Mattsson to participate in a May 2011 training camp.[8]
