Football career 
Born in Lobito, Portuguese Angola, Portuguese Empire, from a white colonial family, Águas started his footballing career with local team Lusitano do Lobito, before moving to S.L. Benfica in 1950, where he played until 1963, where he gained legendary status.
With Benfica he won the league five times (1955, 1957, 1960, 1961 and 1963), the domestic cup seven, also being crowned national league's top scorer on five occasions. In the years previous to Eusébio's explosion at the Lisbon side, he was also instrumental in Benfica's back-to-back European Cup conquests, in 1961 against FC Barcelona (3–2), and the next season against Real Madrid (5–3), scoring his team's first goal on both occasions, and being club captain; he failed to complete a hat-trick of wins in the competition after the 1–2 defeat to A.C. Milan in the 1963 final (he did not play).
For Portugal Águas made his debut on 23 November 1952 in a 1–1 draw with Austria, and went on to gain a total of 25 caps, netting 11 times. His last appearance was on 17 May 1962 a 1–2 defeat against Belgium.
After leaving Benfica Águas, aged 33, played one more season for FK Austria Wien, retiring the next summer. He died in the Portuguese capital at 70.
