Vítor Hugo Gomes da Silva (born 25 December 1987 in Vila do Conde), known as Gomes, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Moreirense F.C. as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

A product of hometown Rio Ave FC's youth system, Gomes first appeared with the main squad on 19 March 2006, starting in a 0–1 home loss against S.L. Benfica. In late January 2008 he began an unsuccessful loan spell at Serie A's Cagliari Calcio, making no appearances and returning to Rio Ave in July; during that season, he also appeared in 13 games (12 starts) as the Vila do Conde team returned to the first division after an absence of two years.

In the following top flight campaigns, Gomes was regularly used by Rio Ave. He scored his first goals in 2009–10, against C.D. Nacional (2–0, home) and S.C. Olhanense (1–5 loss, also at home).

International career[edit]

Internationally, Gomes was a member of the Portuguese U-20 squad at the 2007 FIFA World Cup.[1] Later that year, in August, he received his first callup to the under-21s.[2]


Gomes' older brother, José, is also a footballer. A defender he represented several clubs, and the pair shared teams in Rio Ave (2005–06, 2009–12).
