He played for several teams during his professional career, in three countries.
Born in Jundiaí, São Paulo, Ezequias started playing football with lowly Sport Club Corinthians Alagoano. He would then spend the following seven seasons in Portugal, with C.S. Marítimo – where he arrived in 2001 alongside Pepe, later of FC Porto, Real Madrid and the Portugal national team fame – Gil Vicente FC, Académica de Coimbra, Porto, S.C. Beira-Mar and Leixões SC, the latter two loaned by the Primeira Liga club after being unable to impress (only one league appearance, a 1–2 away loss against S.C. Braga).
In the middle of 2008, Ezequias was finally released by Porto and signed with Romania's FC Braşov. Two years after, after two seasons as first-choice, he moved to another team in that country and its Liga I, FC Rapid Bucureşti.
