Edward Ofere is staging a comeback in Vietnam

Former Malmo FF of Sweden striker Edward Ofere has bounced back to game after he played his first game for his new Vietnamese side FLC Thanh Hoa in a 1-0 win in the AFC Champions League group game against Global FC from the Philippines.

Ofere lasted 61 minutes on the pitch as his Vietnamese club began their Group G campaign in the Asian apex club competition on a sound note.

Capped three times by Nigeria, Ofere has had to endure a bag of mixed fortunes in his career after an illustrious spell at Malmo that earned him a move to Italian Serie A side Lecce.

Winning the Scottish Cup at Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2015 remains the brightest highlight in his European sojourn.

He has had to drop down to fourth-tier league in Sweden in a desperate bid to knock his career back into shape, before he embarked on his current Vietnamese journey.
