Aboubakar Kamara's Wolves performance shows why he deserves to start consistently for Fulham
During the first half of Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers, winger Aboubakar Kamara was the Whites’ brightest attacking threat.
The pace, purposeful runs, and attacking interplay offered by the Frenchman showed why Kamara deserves a consistent starting spot at Fulham.
Claudio Ranieri opted for a three-pronged attack on Boxing Day, with Kamara and Andre Schurrle on the wings, playing just behind Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Whenever he received the ball, Kamara looked to run in behind the Wolves defence, causing Willy Boly numerous problems and forcing the defender to impede Kamara on occasion.
The combination of play between Kamara, Mitrovic, and Schurrle was bright throughout, with the speed of Kamara opening up space for the other attackers.
One particular passage of play summed up Kamara’s afternoon, as the winger received the ball on the left, blew past two Wolves defenders with ease, and put in a dangerous ball that was cleared in the box.
Equally comfortable on either the right or left wing, Kamara constantly was swapping positions and keeping the opposition guessing. In addition, the attacker was eager to track back and use his strength to outmuscle Wolves players to the ball.
Aboubakar Kamara proved his doubters wrong on Wednesday afternoon, turning in a disciplined, dangerous display that will surely give Ranieri no choice but to continue to start the winger.
