It may be a little premature to be writing a post about it but earlier today Kei Kamara tweeted this to his followers:

"Packing for an even longer trip this time...Orlando then Sierra Leone then Sao Tome & Principe"

I assume Kei Kamara is saying that he will go down to Florida with the rest of the squad for pre-season for a couple of days but then fly off to Sierra Leone to meet up with the national squad and then head West towards Sao Tome Principe for the match.

If you take a look at both of the teams schedule's you will see that they are set to play each other February the 29th in the Portuguese speaking nation of Sao Tome Principe. This would be Sierra Leone's and Kei Kamara's first international match of 2012, Kei is still searching for his first goal for his country.

This is coincidentally the same day Roger Espinoza will be playing with Honduras against Ecuador - a story The Daily Wiz brought to you first three days ago. While there has not been an official list of players released yet that will partake in the fixture from either one of the countries I suspect they will release the names soon enough.
