Ambrose Flops In Celtic’s Humiliating Loss
Celtic suffered arguably the worst defeat in their history when they were humbled by Gibraltarian part-timers Lincoln Red Imps in the Champions League second qualifying round.
Lee Casciaro's second-half goal did the damage, the Ministry of Defence police officer outfoxing Efe Ambrose to score.
Leigh Griffiths twice hit the bar, but Celtic could not salvage anything from Brendan Rodgers' first game in charge. The second leg is at Celtic Park next Wednesday.
And while the Scottish champions remain favourites to progress to the third qualifying round, serious improvement will be needed.
Ogu Scores In Narrow Win For Beer Sheva
Nigerian midfielder, John Ogu, made a goalscoring Uefa Champions League debut for his Israeli side, Hapoel Beer Sheva, as they beat FC Sheriff of Moldova 3-2 on Tuesday.
Josip Ivancic stunned the home fans when he scored in the 22nd minute of the game to peg back Beer Sheva who had started brighter of the two sides.
Ogu, who has played in the Europa Cup with Academica de Coimbra of Portugal, equalised for his team two minutes before the break to tie the game at 1-1.
Beer Sheva captain, Elivan Barda, made it 2-1 from the spot in the 52nd minute before Beer Sheva were pegged back by Josip Brezovec’s goal just after the hour mark.
The Israeli champions were able to get the winner in the 90th minute of the game through another spot kick which was converted by Maharan Radi to give Beer Sheva a 3-2 home win.
Nigerian striker, Anthony Nwakaeme, also started the game for the Israeli side albeit he was not on target but had a decent game.
Hapoel Beer Sheva will have a tough task ahead in the second leg when they travel to Moldova to face FC Sheriff .
