Jo netted twice as Manchester City came from behind to beat a spirited Omonia Nicosia 2-1 in an entertaining UEFA Cup first round clash.Jo scored two second-half goals Thursday to help Manchester City rally for a 2-1 win over Omonia Nicosia in the first leg of the UEFA Cup’s first round.

City dominated possession throughout the match and should have put the game away much earlier but missed several clear chances on goal and hit the woodwork three times.
Instead, it was Omonia that scored first from a free kick in the 49th minute when Klodian Duro fired a curling shot from 19 yards (meters) that sailed into the top right-hand corner, out of reach for goalkeeper Joe Hart.
City then drew level in the 59th when Shaun-Wright Phillips stole the ball and crossed it to Jo, who easily slotted it into an open net from close range.
The winner came in the 72nd, when Jo coolly controlled a cross from Pablo Zabaneta with his knee and blasted the ball past Omonia goalkeeper Antonis Georgiallides.
The visitors created a series of chances in the first half, and should have gone ahead in the 26th when Stephen Ireland took advantage of a bad clearance attempt and crossed the ball to an open Jo, who missed an easy tap-in into an empty net.
Jo had another chance in the 40th, but his shot from inside the area struck the left post. Ireland then hit the post four minutes later with a close-range effort after cross from Jo.
Ireland came close again in the 53rd when Georgallides saved another close-range effort, and Jo’s shot hit the crossbar two minutes later.
Omonia came close to extending its lead in the 57th when Hamad Dhikumana’s shot just sailed wide of the post.
In the 79th, Duro’s long-range effort from 30 yards (meters) bounced off the crossbar, while Ferreira Clayton Cruz had his shot saved from point blank range in extra time.
Brazil striker Robinho made his presence felt early in the match, having a close-range shot with the outside of his right foot saved by Georgallides.
Some of the 400 City fans wore Brazil jerseys and waved Brazilian flags as the team fielded its all-Brazilian attack of Robinho, Jo and Elano for the first time.
