Aymoré Moreira (April 24, 1912 – July 26, 1998) was a football player and coach. He was a brother of Zezé Moreira and Ayrton Moreira, both of them also successful coaches in the Brazilian soccer.


Moreira was born in Miracema, Rio de Janeiro. He began his football career as a right-winger, but soon he changed to become a goalkeeper, playing in América-RJ, Palestra Itália and Botafogo-RJ, where he remained from 1936 to 1946 and earned call-ups to the Brazilian national team.

After his retirement as a player, he became a successful coach, leading Brazil to its second world title in Chile in 1962. In the first match against Mexico, Pelé assisted on the first goal and scored the second one, later injuring himself while attempting a long-range shot against Czechoslovakia. This kept him out of the rest of the tournament and forced Moreira to make his only lineup change of the tournament, bringing in Amarildo. The replacement duly scored in the final, a rematch against Czechoslovakia. Garrincha starred in the 3-1 win.

Moreira managed Brazil for 61 matches, with 37 wins, 9 draws and 15 loses. Besides winning the World Cup, he led the "Canarinho" to win the Taça Oswaldo Cruz in 1961 and 1962, Taça Bernardo O'Higgins in 1961 and 1966, Roca Cup in 1963 and Taça Rio Branco in 1967.

Among the clubs he coached were Bangu,[1] Palmeiras, Portuguesa, Botafogo-RJ, São Paulo, Galícia[2] and Panathinaikos.[3]

Moreira died in Salvador, Bahia, aged 86.
