HOW ACQUIRED: Added as a Discovery Signing by Columbus Crew SC on February 4, 2016.
PRONUNCIATION: O-lah kuh-MAR-uh
Ola joined Columbus prior to the 2016 season and is took over the starting role after the departure of another Kamara, Kei. While not a classic No. 9, there's no denying Kamara's ability to finish as he took the league by storm in 2016. HIs deft touch should come in handy for a team looking to improve in 2017.
INTERNATIONAL: Kamara has made seven senior national team caps for Norway, with his debut coming on October 11, 2013 in a FIFA World Cup qualification contest against Slovenia. He has scored one goal for his country, in an international friendly on January 15, 2014 against Moldova.
OUTSIDE MLS: Played in Scandinavia for nine years with his most successful stint coming with Stromsgodset in Norway, where he took home the 2013 Tippeligaen title. He signed with Austria Vienna in 2014 and was later loaned out to Molde, where he scored 14 goals in 29 games.
