The following season, da Mota scored 24 goals (fully 40% of all of second-placed Ettelbruck's goals), finishing as the league's top goalscorer.[1] In July 2008, he left FC Etzella Ettelbruck and moved for 65,000 Euro to F91 Dudelange.

Born in Luxembourg to Portuguese parents, Da Mota took up Luxembourgian citizenship in January 2007[2] and made his debut for Luxembourg in a June 2007 European Championship qualification match against Albania. His first two international goals helped Luxembourg defeat Slovakia by a score of 2–1 on 9 February 2011. He scored his second international goal on 7 September 2012 in a World Cup qualifier against Portugal in a 2–1 defeat.
