Super Eagles left back Brian Idowu was in full duration action as his team Khimki drew 0-0 against FC Rotor Volgograd.
The Lokomotiv Moscow loanee was impressive in the Russian Premier League game played at the Volgograd Arena on Saturday.
The Super Eagles defender, who was born in Russia to Nigerian parents, has spent his entire career in the European country so far.
After developing his game at Zenit St. Petersburg’s youth academy, the left-back moved to Amkar Perm in 2010 where he later made his debut in the Russian Premier League two years later.
He spent eight years in the city of Perm which includes a loan spell with Dynamo St Petersburg in the 2013–14 season, however, he left Amkar Perm in July 2018 to sign a three-year with Lokomotiv Moscow.
Since he arrived in Moscow, the defender has struggled for regular action as he featured in 25 league games across two seasons.
On the international scene, Idowu’s last outing for the Super Eagles was at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia, where he played in every game before their group stage exit.
His last invitation to Gernot Rohr’s team was in September 2019 but he was an unused substitute in Nigeria’s 2-2 draw against Ukraine in an international friendly.
