Ivanildo Rodrigues dos Santos (born December 12, 1988), commonly known simply as Ivan or Ivanildo, is a Brazilian football player. He currently plays for Qatar Stars League side Al Gharrafa on loan from Lekhwiya.[1]

On October 2, 2011, Ivan made his professional debut as a starter for El Jaish in a league match against Lekhwiya.[2]

In December 2012, while playing for El Jaish SC against Al Rayyan he sent a free-kick out for a corner from inside his own penalty area after completely slicing the ball when trying to find a team mate with the ball. The video of the incident went viral around the world on the internet.[3] It was referred to as 'the worst goal kick ever' by The Daily Mail.[4]
