Humility Will Keep Jebor High
By Wleh Bedell
Ruthless front man William Jebor will continue to make inroads and move up high in his career due to humility. The 23 year old who is now on loan at Second Division club SD Ponferradina of Spain from Portuguese elite side Rio Ave where he featured in the Europa league last term, is quite a humbled character who is always willing to learn, not resting on his laurels, lives simple and has great respect for fellow human being. With exploits in Egypt where he was top scorer in the disrupted league in 2013 where he netted ten goals for top flight side El-Geisha, Jebor is quite a gifted player who allows his football to do his talking.
After expeditions in Syria, Egypt, Libya and Portugal, the player's move to Spain will enable him get more playing time as he will be able to compete week in week out as he moves to another level in his career.
Having scored his first international goal against Togo on match week one of the 2017 qualifiers, the former Oilers hit-man will be itching to put up another linchpin performance, and unlike where he lacked much service in the 1-2 loss to Togo's Sparrow Hawks where he probed, toiled and covered lot of ground in the Lone Star energy sapping 4-1-4-1 formation against Emmanuel Adebayor and co, he will certainly get more supply this time since the red, white and blue outfit is expected to be adventurous against group leaders Tunisia's Carthage Eagles on this Saturday
September 5, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
Since making his debut on March 26, 2011, in Liberia's 2-4 away loss to Cape Verde in the 2012 Afcon qualifier, Jebor was often over looked as he had to wait for more than four years for a second chance as he always said " my time will come. I will wait patiently. I respect the coach's decision".
Indeed, the lethal striker who is nicknamed Inzaghi for his knack for goals, time has surely come and his jaw dropping goal against Togo coupled with his jinks where he got behind the hosts defense by running over the shoulders of defenders and running down the channels showed just what the Lone Star had been missing and with Jebor expected to lead a trident strike force that will also include the menacing Sam Johnson and the bubbling Francis Doe, the options will be aplenty to give the Tunisians a huge work load.
Rejected by LISCR and welcomed by LPRC Oilers, William Jebor remains faithful to God, hardworking, humbled and continue to keep his feet on the ground. The danger man Jebor is with the sofa on stage as it is his turn. He remains humbled though which is also a recipe for greatness.
