Teever was the top goalscorer in the 2008 and the 2015 Meistriliiga seasons. Teever was named Meistriliiga Player of the Year in 2015.

Club careerEdit

At the age of 19, Teever started his professional career with TVMK, having previously played for lower division clubs Nõmme Kalju and M.C. Tallinn. There he won the 2005 Meistriliiga, Estonian Cup in 2003 and Estonian Supercup in 2005, before leaving the club in 2005.

ÖsterEdit

On 1 December 2015, Teever joined Swedish Allsvenskan club Öster.[1][2] His first appearances for Öster were very promising, but as competitive matches approached, Teever's scoring record decreased rapidly. Teever scored a total of only five goals during his two seasons in Sweden, despite playing regularly.

Nõmme KaljuEdit

Teever joined newly promoted Nõmme Kalju on loan after Öster were relegated to Swedish Swedish football Division 1. He became an instant hit, scoring 23 goals in 35 matches, winning the top goalscorer award,[3] and driving the team to the 4th place, just a point behind the third, Trans Narva. After the first season back in Estonia, the player signed a permanent deal.[citation needed] Then he was hit by a knee injury leaving him sidelined for the first half of the season.[4] Teever returned for only 6 appearances, when he injured his neck in a life-threatening pool accident,[5] but made a full recovery and returned for the 2010 season.[6]

PfullendorfEdit

On 29 July 2010 it was announced that Ingemar Teever joined German Regionalliga Süd club Pfullendorf.[7] He spent two years in Germany, scoring ten goals in 51 matches.[8]

LevadiaEdit

After his contract expired in May 2012, Teever returned to Estonia and joined Nõmme Kalju's beach soccer team.[9] He was also part of Estonian national team that played 2013 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualification matches in Moscow in the beginning of July.[10] Teever then signed a year-and-a-half long contract with Levadia[11][12] and was instantly added to the UEFA Europa League squad.[13][14] He also got offers from Finland and Germany, but decided to stay in Estonia so he could have better chance to return to the national team.[15] On 19 July 2012, Teever made his debut for Levadia when he came on as a second-half substitute in a Europa League match against Cypriot side Anorthosis.[16] He opened his goal scoring tally on his Meistriliiga debut on 23 July 2012, when his injury time free kick found the net against Tallinna Kalev.[17]

International careerEdit

Teever made his international debut for the Estonia national football team on 29 March 2003 in a friendly match against Canada.[18]
