Ideye began his career with Bayelsa United before moving to Ocean Boys and was a member of the Ocean Boys team that won the Nigerian Premier League.

On January 2008, Ideye moved to Europe to sign for Swiss Super League club Neuchatel Xamax. Before the move to Switzerland, he was on trial with Dutch side Willem II but was not signed. After three years with Xamax, Ideye left to sign for French Ligue 1 club Sochaux.

He has played for several clubs in Europe among them Dynamo Kyiv, West Bromwich Albion and Olympiacos. He also played in China for Tianjin Teda, after leaving Greece in 2017.

On the international scene, Ideye represented the Super Eagles at the 2007 U-20 World Cup in Canada, where he played five games and scored one goal, against Costa Rica.

Ideye was also called up to Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, playing in most of their games at the tournament. He scored Nigeria’s second goal in their 4-1 semi-final win over Mali and played in the 1-0 win over Burkina Faso in the final.

2022 World Cup: Unwanted history for hosts Qatar against Ecuador

Published

on

Qatar on Sunday, became the first host country to be defeated in their opening game in the 92-year history of the World Cup.

Ecuador beat the Middle East country 2-0 courtesy of two first-half goals from captain Enner Valencia. Ecuador’s captain also saw a goal ruled out for offside. The result means Qatar become the first host nation ever to lose their opening game at a World Cup.

It’s obviously not the start Qatar will have wanted to make to a competition that had been plagued by controversy before a ball had even been kicked.

Supporters also made their feelings clear about the match at half-time as they abandoned the game in large numbers with the hosts already 2-0 down. Initial estimates suggest around 20,000 supporters left the game at the break.

There were just 11 shots in this game (five for Qatar, six for Ecuador) – no World Cup match on record (since 1966) has seen fewer attempts.

The hosts return to action on Friday against Senegal.
