Club career

Born in Monrovia, Jebor made his senior debut with Liberia Petroleum Refining Company Oilers in 2008, aged 17, after previously representing LISCR FC as a youth. In the summer of 2009, he moved abroad for the first time in his career, signing for Syrian Premier League side Taliya SC.

In 2010, Jebor switched teams and countries again, joining Egyptian Second Division club Tersana SC. After a short spell at Eastern Company, he moved to Tala’ea El Gaish in the Egyptian Premier League.

Jebor made his debut for the club on 3 February 2013, starting in a 0–1 away loss against Ismaily SC, and scored his first goal for the club on 12 March, netting the first in a 2–1 home win against El Mokawloon SC. He finished the campaign with ten goals, being tournament’s topscorer; highlights included a hat-trick in a 3–2 home success over Ittihad El Shorta on 7 May.

In January 2014, Jebor switched clubs and countries again, after agreeing to a six-month loan deal with Al-Ahli Tripoli SC. On 5 August he signed a four-year contract with Portuguese side Rio Ave FC.

Jebor made his Primeira Liga debut on 13 September 2014, coming on as a second-half substitute for Renan Bressan in a 1–1 draw at Moreirense FC. He scored his first goal for the club on 30 April of the following year, netting his team’s only in a 1–1 Taça de Portugal home draw against SC Braga.

On 28 July 2015, Jebor was loaned to SD Ponferradina in Spanish Segunda División, in a season-long deal.

International career

Jebor made his debut for Liberia on 26 March 2011, starting in a 2–4 loss against Cape Verde. His first international goal came on 14 June 2015, in a 1–2 defeat at Togo.

On 13 October 2015, Jebor scored a hat-trick in a 3–1 win at Guinea-Bissau, after scoring another one in the first leg. And he also scored another hat-trick against Djibouti in the African Cup of Nations Qualifier. On March 29, 2016, he scored another hat-trick in a CAF 2017 qualification match in Monrovia, Liberia, between Djibouti and Liberia, becoming the only Liberian senior national football team player to score a hat-trick more than once in an international tournament. As a result, Liberians call him the “Victorious Boy”, “A True Son Of The Soil”, and “The Striker.” He is considered by some to be the most important player of the current generation of Liberia football.
