José Luís Mendes Andrade (born 24 January 1991), commonly known as Zé Luís, is a Cape Verdean professional footballer who plays for Videoton FC on loan from S.C. Braga in Portugal, as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Born in Fogo, Zé Luís began his professional career at the age 18 with his last youth club, Gil Vicente FC. In his first season he played in only five games for the second division club – his debut coming on 29 November 2009 in a 0–3 home loss against G.D. Chaves – but managed to score four goals.

In 2010–11, under new manager Paulo Alves, Zé Luís netted ten times for the Barcelos side as it achieved promotion to the top level after a five-year absence, as champions. On 2 June 2011, he signed for S.C. Braga on a five-year contract.[1]

International career[edit]

Zé Luís made his debut for Cape Verde on 24 May 2010, playing one minute in a friendly in Covilhã with Portugal, which was preparing for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.[2] He was selected by manager Lúcio Antunes for the squad that appeared at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, but withdrew for personal reasons.[3]
