† Appearances (Goals).
Šebo started his professional career with German team FC Köln but did not make a first team appearance, playing his games for reserve side Köln II. He moved to Slovakian side Inter Bratislava in 2003 after being released from Köln. Eight goals in twenty-five appearances earned him a transfer to Artmedia Bratislava – known for their run in the 2005–06 UEFA Champions League.
In the summer of 2005, after 22 goals in 29 games and the award for the league's top-scorer, he was bought by Austrian side Austria Vienna who paid approximately £400,000 for him. Šebo played 32 times, scoring 5 goals for the Austrian side, helping them to achieve an Austrian Bundesliga and Cup double.
Rangers manager Paul Le Guen made Šebo his ninth signing on 3 August 2006 after Austria Vienna and Rangers agreed a fee of £1.85m. Le Guen gave him his first starting appearance for Rangers on 17 September, against Hibernian in an SPL match and he scored. His first home goal came on 1 October scoring a late winner in a 1–0 victory over Aberdeen at Ibrox. Šebo played his first European match for Rangers on 28 September, playing the last 15 minutes of a UEFA Cup first-round second-leg tie against Molde FK. Rangers won 2–0 to qualify for the group stage. Despite his lack of goals, he became something of a cult figure for Rangers, due to both his tremendous workrate and his distinctive broad, stocky build and shaven head.
In a friendly against Airdrie United on 31 January 2007, Šebo scored in a 3–0 win, his first goal in 3 months for the club. In another friendly, he scored a hat-trick in a 5–0 defeat of Gretna. In July 2007, Šebo scored Rangers second goal in a 2–0 pre-season friendly win over Chelsea, it was his first goal at Ibrox in almost 10 months.
'Šebo' is often chanted in a humorous manner by football fans in Scotland when an opposition player hits a wayward shot. This is due to Filip's perceived lack of prowess in front of goal during his time at Rangers.
On 22 August 2007, Šebo joined French Ligue 1 side Valenciennes on a year long loan deal. He scored his first goal for Valenciennes in a Coupe de la Ligue match against Sochaux on 27 September 2007. He netted his first and second league goals on 11 November against Caen.
He completed a permanent switch to France on 29 May 2008, with Valenciennes paying a fee of around one million pounds.
On 15 August 2006, Šebo made his debut for the Slovakia national team in a friendly against Malta. He marked the occasion by scoring a hat-trick. He scored another two goals in his second international match against Cyprus.
