Ola Kamara scored 18 goals in the 2017 MLS campaign, finishing fifth among all goal scorers in MLS that season. He finished eighth during the 2016 season, with 16 goals that year.
Kamara, David Villa, Diego Valeri, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Sebastian Giovinco and Ignacio Piatti are the only players in MLS to finish top ten in goals in both the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
Kamara made the move to MLS in 2016 after playing for Molde FK in the Norwegian topflight on loan from FK Austria Wien. Kamara has also spent time with other European clubs, including TSV 1860 München (Germany), Strømsgodset (Norway), Hønefoss (Norway) and Stabaek (Norway). Kamara began his professional career with Stabaek at the age of 16.
Internationally, Kamara has made nine appearances for the Norwegian National team, debuting for his country on Oct. 11, 2013. Two standout MLS seasons earned Kamara a recent call-up to his national team, as he appeared for Norway in two November 2017 friendlies against Macedonia and Slovakia.
