By Mohamed Fajah Barrie in Freetown

Striker Kei Ansu Kamara has netted his first brace of the season as Columbus Crew gave away a big lead to draw 4-4 at home to Montrel Impact in the United States Major League Soccer on Saturday.

Kamara gave his side the lead in the 16th minute and also restored their lead a minute into the stoppage time in the first half after Montreal Impact had equalised 1-1.

Ivorian football legend and former African player of the Didier Drogba provided an assist and was also among the goal scorers for the Montreal Impact who came from 4-1 down to fight for a draw.

The 31-old Kamara has now accounted for five goals in nine appearances in the MLS so far this season.

Columbus Crew are ninth in the MLS Eastern Conference table with nine points while Montreal Impact are on top of the standings with 15 points but have played more games.

Kamara’s brace came few hours after Rodney Strasser’s team Zagreb were relegated to the Croatian second tier league after they lost 2-0 away to Locomotiva Zagreb.

The winner will be announced in a ceremony in London on May 21.
