Scores in Lyon this Sunday during his defeat in Montpellier (2-3), his first goal for the season, a late head (90 + 2), "Souleymane Camara has entered the history of France's championship for its lifetime", reports L & # 39; Equipe.
Born in Dakar, where he also grew up, Souleymane Camara in his youth attended several amateur clubs in the Senegalese capital.
He went through the center of Aldo Gentina, who trained players who were part of the backbone of the national team of Senegal's finalist CAN 2002 and quarter-finalist for the World Cup in the same year.
As Souleymane Camara, Tony Sylva, Amdy Faye and Salif Diao are all former residents of the Aldo Gentina Center, established in 1992 thanks to the will of an Italian football cake entertainer, Aldo Gentina and some former Senegalese players. Since its inception, the center has benefited from the support of As Monaco.
Souleymane Camara had just been spotted there by recruiters of the rock club who had suggested him to test before he recruited it.
He scored his first goal in Ligue 1 on December 22, 2001, the day of his 19th birthday against Stade Rennes, for his first game as a proprietor.
With his training club, he won the Coupe de la Ligue in 2003, but he is lending to the end of the 2003-2004 season to EA Guingamp, whom he does not convince the leaders.
He returned to AS Monaco for the 2004-2005 season, but due to a rather slow playtime, he left Rock to sign at OGC Nice, scoring only one goal in two seasons. The Nice leaders decided to lend him, in 2007, the Montpellier Hérault Sport Club, which then develops in Ligue 2.
He definitely signed Montpellier HSC in 2008 and then found Ligue 1 with his new club in 2009 and even became one of the great craftsmen of the qualification in the Europa League of Herault team in the 2009-2010 season.
In Montpellier, he earned a reputation as a "super-sub", a concept that became popular by the English football player and designated a player who was not always very successful as a player but who scores many goals in games where he enters the game as replacements.
With this status he helps his team win the title as champion in France in 2012.
Souleymane Camara is now linked to the club hydraulics until June 30, 2019, following the extension of his contract with Montpellier on May 2, 2018.
With Senegal's national football team, he played African Cup of Nations and the 2002 World Cup before being removed a little.
The Den has still been able to count on him from time to time for many years, even though he was not called very often, without depriving him of a final participation in the Cup of Africa of Nations in 2012, the edition played in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
