Liberia’s Jebor World Cup Hat-trick Hero




By  Sylvester Worwee

William Jebor staged a one-man demolition act on October 13, 2015 to take Liberia into the second preliminary round of the 2018 World Cup - Russia qualifiers. The 23-year-old striker from Spanish second-tier club SD Ponferradina scored a hat-trick, as the Lone Stars stoned from a poor first-leg showing to beat Guinea-Bissau 3-1 in the return fixture.

Liberia qualified 4-2 on aggregate and now faces reigning African champions Ivory Coast next month in another home-and-away tie, having been held 1-1 in the first leg.

Jebor did not take long to make his mark at the Estádio 24 de Setembro in Bissau, as his strikes in the eighth and twelfth minutes left the hosts needing to score at least three times under the away-goal rule.

Ibraime Cassama did pulled one back just before half-time but it was the Jebor who had the final say, as the Liberian struck again six minutes into stoppage time to complete his hat-trick.

Jebor also scored in the first leg, taking his first-round goal tally to four to share top spot on the scorers' chart with Nigerien striker, Moussa Maazou. Ouwo Moussa Maâzou alias Moussa Maâzou plays professional footballer for Chinese club side Changchun Yatai.

Maazou struck two goals in the space of four minutes in the second half of Niger’s 2-0 away win over Somalia in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where the Ocean Stars played their home fixture owing to the long-standing conflict in Somalia. The Changchun Yatai striker scored a brace in Niger 4-0 thrashing of Somalia at Stade Général Seyni Kountché in Niamey in the return fixture.

meanwhile, the former LPRC Oiler frontman and LISCR youth player also become the second Lone Star player to scored a hat-trick in a competitive encounter, after the famous Jackson Weah (deceased).

According to a Liberian football pundit, Toyuwa Harris, the see-saw specialist scored two hat-tricks against The Gambia and Guinea, Conakry.
Quoting from the Liberian Age Newspaper dated December 13, 1963, Mr. Harris said Jackson Weah scored a hat-trick in Lone Star 6-0 win over The Gambia in Banjul and got another hat-trick against Conakry 11; the previous name for Guinean national team now nicknamed Syli Nationale.
