China: Ideye, Ujah Fire Blanks As Tianjin TEDA, Liaoning Draw

By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles striker Brown Ideye could not get on the score sheet for Tianjin TEDA who were held to a 1-1 home draw by Liaoning Hongyun, who paraded another Nigerian striker Anthony Ujah in the Chinese Super League on Sunday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Nigeria captain Mikel Obi did not feature for Tianjin as he is still recovering from injury.

The game was Ideye’s seventh league appearance, scoring just one goal, while it was Ujah’s fifth league appearance also with just one goal.

Ideye was subbed off with four minutes left in the game but Ujah played 90 minutes.

After a 0-0 first half, Tianjin TEDA took the lead in the 81st minute through Rentian Hu.

But in the 92nd minute, a goal by Ximing Pan denied Tianjin Teda the three points.

The draw means Tianjin are 10th in the league table on nine points, while Liaoning Hongyun are 11th on seven points.
