Custódio Miguel Dias de Castro (born 24 May 1983), known simply as Custódio, is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a defensive midfielder.

During 12 seasons, he amassed Primeira Liga totals of 209 matches and 12 goals, representing in the competition Sporting, Vitória de Guimarães and Braga. He reached the 2011 Europa League final with the latter club, and also competed professionally in Russia and Turkey.

Custódio was part of the Portugal squad at Euro 2012, earning a total of ten caps in one year.

Club career[edit]

Custódio was born in the village of Brito, Guimarães. From 2001 to 2007 he played for Sporting Clube de Portugal, making his Primeira Liga debut on 16 August 2003 in a 2–1 away win against Académica de Coimbra[1] and finishing his first season with 22 first-team appearances.

In the 2006–07 campaign, coach Paulo Bento named Custódio team captain, in recognition of his history at Sporting and consistent displays in the previous seasons. Incidentally, in that timeframe, he also fell out of favor in the club's rotation and, in June 2007, was sold to Russian Premier League side FC Dynamo Moscow.[2]

Custódio returned to Portugal in January 2009, re-joining childhood club Vitória de Guimarães along with Cícero Semedo.[3] On 31 August of the following year, he moved to Minho neighbours S.C. Braga.

In his first season with Braga, Custódio battled for first-choice status with Brazilians Leandro Salino and Vandinho, but managed to appear in nearly 25 official games. On 5 February 2011 he scored from close range in a 2–1 away win against C.S. Marítimo,[4] helping his team finish fourth in the league. On 5 May he netted arguably the most important goal of his career, heading from a corner kick for the game's only in a home win against S.L. Benfica in the UEFA Europa League semifinals second leg, with Braga qualifying for the final on the away goals rule.[5]

Custódio spent the first half of 2011–12 on the sidelines, nursing a serious knee injury.[6] When he returned to full fitness, however, he benefitted from Djamal Mahamat's presence in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations and begun appearing regularly in the starting XI, scoring against Marítimo (2–1 away win) and former team Guimarães (4–0, at home).[7]

In May 2017, after two-and-a-half seasons in the Turkish Süper Lig with Akhisar Belediyespor, 34-year-old Custódio retired and returned to Braga, being named assistant manager at the reserve side.[8]

International career[edit]

A Portugal under-21 international, Custódio appeared in two UEFA European Championship editions, 2004 and 2006. He was selected by full side manager Paulo Bento for his 23-man squad for UEFA Euro 2012,[9] and made his debut on 2 June, a 1–3 friendly loss with Turkey in Lisbon;[10] in the finals in Poland and Ukraine, he played 20 minutes in the decisive 2–1 group stage win against the Netherlands after replacing injured Raul Meireles.[11]
