Francisco Flaminio Ferreira Romero (born 17 September 1970) is a former Paraguayan football striker.

Ferreira started his career in Club Sportivo Luqueño, where at a very young age became one of the team's most prolific strikers leading the Paraguayan League in goalscoring in 1993.[1] His excellent form in 1993 caught the attention of Club Olimpia, who signed Ferreira for the 1994 season. He would then play for teams in Colombia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, as well as returning to Paraguay to play for Sportivo Luqueño and Cerro Porteño. In 2000 he was the league's topscorer again, with 23 goals.

At the national team level, Ferreira was part of the Paraguay squad during the 1992 Olympic Games and was capped for a few other occasions until 2000.[2]
