Aymoré Moreira (24 April 1912 – 26 July 1998) was a Brazilian football player and coach, who played as a goalkeeper. He was a brother of Zezé Moreira and Ayrton Moreira, both of whom were also successful coaches in Brazilian football.


Moreira was born in Miracema, Rio de Janeiro. He began his career as a right-winger, but soon he changed to become a goalkeeper, playing for América, Palestra Itália and Botafogo, where he remained from 1936 to 1946 and earned call-ups to the Brazilian national team, the "Canarinho" (Portuguese, Little Canary).

After his retirement as a player, he became a successful coach, leading the Brazilian national team to its second FIFA World Cup in (1962). In the first match against Mexico national team, Pelé assisted on the first goal and scored the second one, later injuring himself while attempting a long-range shot against Czechoslovakia national team. This kept him out of the remainder of the tournament and forced Moreira to make his only lineup change of the tournament; bringing in Amarildo. The replacement duly scored in the final, a rematch against Czechoslovakia. Garrincha starred in the 3–1 win.

Moreira managed Brazilian national team for 61 matches, with 37 wins, 9 draws and 15 loses. Besides winning the World Cup, he led the "Canarinha" to win the Taça Oswaldo Cruz in 1961 and 1962, Taça Bernardo O'Higgins in 1961 and 1966, Roca Cup in 1963 and Taça Rio Branco in 1967.

Among the clubs he coached were Bangu,[1] Palmeiras, Portuguesa, Botafogo, São Paulo, Galícia[2] and Panathinaikos.[3]

Moreira died in Salvador, Bahia, aged 86.
