Nigeria international Brown Ideye is eagerly awaiting his debut in the Chinese Super League for Tianjin Teda.
The former West Bromwich Albion striker, who joined the club from Greek champions Olympiacos during the January transfer window, missed the season opener which was just days before his arrival.
The team lost 2-0 on the road with Nigeria skipper Mikel Obi playing the entire game.
Ideye said he is raring to go ahead of his first official game in China.
“Looking forward to my debut with Tianjin Teda⚽️🙏🏾,” he tweeted.
He is now expected to be listed for the game at Jiangsu Suning on Friday.
The hard-running striker has previously featured in France, Switzerland, Ukraine, England and Greece.
