Life and career

Diniyev played football as a midfielder. His club career included spells in the USSR, and later Russia, and finally back to Azerbaijan, where he ended his career with Dynamo Baku.[2] He competed 16 times for the Azerbaijani national team, gaining no international caps with the USSR before independence. Following a period as a youth coach, Diniyev moved into club management, first with FK Qarabağ and then Kapaz PFC. Diniyev's sons are also professional footballers with Karim currently playing for him at Kapaz, whilst Joshgun plays for Qarabağ.

Azerbaijan national team career

In November 2005, he impressed the AFFA sufficiently to be awarded with the national team job, promising to restructure the squad with an emphasis on youth and to help turn Azerbaijan into a credible force within UEFA competition.[2] Replacing Vagif Sadygov, Diniyev's first game in charge was a friendly against Ukraine in Baku[3] at the Tofig Bakhramov Stadium; the result was 0-0, a minor success against stronger opposition.

In further friendlies, a shock 1-1 draw against Turkey and another 0-0 draw against Moldova followed. Diniyev was soon to witness his first defeat as Azerbaijan coach: in August 2006 he watched his team succumb to a 6-0 defeat against Ukraine, this time in Kiev.[3] This game was the final friendly match before qualification for the 2008 UEFA European Football Championship began. (See Azerbaijan national football team.)

Under Diniyev, the Azerbaijan squad has given debuts to not only young players but also some naturalised foreigners, such as Leandro Gomes of FC Baku,[4] who was born in Brazil.[5]
