Brown Ideye’s hot streak in front of goal continued on Tuesday in the Uefa Champions League third round qualifier against Feyenoord. Ideye scored the winning goal to help Dynamo Kiev claim a 2-1 first leg lead.
The Nigerian who scored at the weekend for a similar 2-1 victory has now scored in all of Dynamo Kiev’s matches for the 2012/13 season.
The first half was a cut and thrust affair and it remained goalless at the break. Feyenoord flew out of the blocks in the second and scored from a classic counter in the 49th minute through Ruben Schaken who expertly converted Lex Immers' cross.
Dynamo drew level when goalkeeper Erwin Mulder's attempted clearance went into his own net off the back of Immers.
Dynamo upped the tempo and got the second goal through their Nigerian striker in the 69th minute. Ideye converted an Oleh Gusev's cross.
The Nigerian then had three chances to give the Ukrainian club a more comfortable cushion going into the second leg but a mixture of ill-luck and hurried shooting denied him further goals.
Ideye hit the woodwork in the 79th minute, had a shot cleared in the 83rd minute and then had a shot blocked in the 84th minute. Ideye’s three compatriots did not see action though Taye Taiwo joined only on Monday.
Haruna Lukman was not listed and Ayila Yussuf was an unused substitute. The second leg will come up next week Tuesday.
