José Filipe Correia Semedo (born 26 December 1979) is a Cape Verdean footballer who plays for Omonia Aradippou in Cyprus, as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Semedo started his senior career with local amateurs C.F. Benfica, signing for neighbouring Odivelas F.C. in 2001. After stellar performances with the latter in the third division (18 goals in 29 matches in the 2007–08 season), he attracted attention from top level clubs, eventually joining Rio Ave FC.

In his first match in the competition, on 24 August 2008, Semedo scored in a 1–1 home draw against S.L. Benfica. In January of the following year he moved to Cyprus, teaming up with several Portuguese players at APOP Kinyras FC.

In May 2010, after two solid seasons – including 22 Cypriot First Division goals in his first full campaign, competition best – he stayed in the country, signing with cup winners Apollon Limassol.[1]

International career[edit]

Although Portuguese-born, Semedo opted to represent Cape Verde internationally, starting in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying stage.
