In 2007, he moved to Spain, where he played for several clubs in the lower leagues, the highest ranked being Águilas CF in the Segunda División B.

After spending a long three-seasons spell in Spain, he moved to Oman where he signed a contract with first-division club Bahla Club.

International career[edit]

When Doe played in Mali for Stade Malien, he met with Izetta Sombo Wesley, president of the Liberia Football Association who was in Bamako with the national team in the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations.
