New Norwich signing Kamara big screen star in Sierra Leone
Norwich striker Kei Kamara has said his Premier League debut at the weekend has created great interest in his home country of Sierra Leone. The 28-year-old, on loan from Major League Soccer side Kansas City, came off the bench in a draw against Fulham.
"They say all the cinemas were full. I don't even know what it would have been like out there," the forward told BBC Radio Norfolk.
"There's going to be a bunch of yellow shirts out there with my name on it."
"After the move became official, for Norwich's last game against QPR everybody was in the cinemas thinking I was playing," he added after playing the last five minutes against Fulham at the weekend.
"It's a good thing my phone doesn't work right now because if it did I would be having so many phone calls.
"I represent my country wherever I go but being here now - it's the talk of the town.
"If I do well people might recognise where I'm from, maybe they will Google Sierra Leone a little bit more.
"When I go to the national team, everybody always asks, 'when are you going to England?' because it's basically the only game that's screened all around the world."
