In January 2005, Cícero moved to Russia for FC Dynamo Moscow as many Portuguese players (or playing in the league) during that period, returning to Portugal in the 2009 January transfer window and joining Braga rivals Vitória de Guimarães. In the summer, he signed with second level club U.D. Oliveirense in a season-long loan.
Cícero represented Portugal at youth level. He earned his first senior cap for Guinea-Bissau on 9 October 2010, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 away loss against Angola for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
