Former Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose scored his second goal in the Europa League as his Scottish club Hibernian battled from two goals down to beat Asteras Tripolis of Greece 3-2 in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League.


Giorgos Kiriskopoulous scored in the 12th and 35th minute to give the Greek side a two zero lead going into the half time break but four minutes after the hour mark, Efe Ambrose started the comeback with the first goal for Hibernian.

David Gray levelled matters for the Scottish side in the 76th minute and he almost snatched a dramatic win for the home side but the shot stopper of the visitors from Greece denied him with a fantastic stop.

Two minutes into time added on Florian Kamberi netted was ended as the winner for Hibernian to complete an amazing turn around for the modest Scottish team ahead of the return leg tie next week.

The goal was the second goal Ambrose who plays as a central defender has scored in the Europa League Qualifiers this season as he was also on target in their last game against NSI in the previous round.

29 year old Ambrose is still hopeful of forcing his way into the international set up once again as he has not been considered for selection since Franco-German coach Gernot Rohr took over two years ago.
