JOHANNESBURG – William Jebor staged a one-man demolition act Tuesday to take Liberia into the second round of 2018 World Cup qualifying in Africa.

The 23-year-old striker from Spanish second-tier club Ponferradina scored a hat-trick as the Lone Stars atoned for a poor first-leg showing by winning the return game 3-1 in Guinea-Bissau.

Liberia qualified 4-2 on aggregate after being held 1-1 in Monrovia last Thursday and face reigning African champions Ivory Coast next month in another home-and-away tie.

Jebor did not take long to make his mark at Stade du 24 Septembre in Bissau on the west coast, scoring after eight and 12 minutes.READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON BANGKOK POST
