Evandro Goebel (born 23 August 1986), known simply as Evandro, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Portuguese club FC Porto as an attacking midfielder. He also holds Serbian citizenship.[1]

During six seasons, he amassed Série A totals of 133 games and 13 goals, representing five clubs. He also competed professionally in Serbia and Portugal.

Club career[edit]

Atlético Paranaense[edit]

Born in Blumenau, Santa Catarina (state), Evandro made his professional debut for Clube Atlético Paranaense against Clube Malutrom, in a 3–1 win for the Campeonato Paranaense on 10 February 2005. He scored his first goal on 1 June, helping to a 3–2 success over Santos FC in the Copa Libertadores.

During his five-year tenure at the Arena da Baixada, he was also loaned to Goiás Esporte Clube, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras and Clube Atlético Mineiro.[2] On 25 May 2010, still owned by Atlético, he signed alongside teammate Renan Oliveira with Esporte Clube Vitória, in exchange for Neto Berola.[3]

Red Star[edit]

On 1 December 2010, Evandro joined Serbian club Red Star Belgrade on a three-and-a-half-year deal.[4] In order to reduce the number of foreigners in the team, a Serbian passport was requested for him, and the following July the Serbian government approved the move and he officially became a national of the country.

On 16 May 2012, Evandro scored the opening goal in the final of the Serbian Cup, a 2–0 defeat of FK Borac Čačak. On 22 August, however, he terminated his contract right before the second leg of the UEFA Europa League's play-off round against FC Girondins de Bordeaux, saying to a journalist at Belgrade's airport: "I can't play for Red Star any more. I train, I play games, and there is no money. I can't do it any longer, I have to think about my family. I am not mad at anyone. I loved Belgrade and Serbia. I played the best I could, I don't think Red Star was a mistake."[5]


In the summer of 2012, Evandro moved to Portugal with G.D. Estoril Praia. He made his Primeira Liga debut on 29 September, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–2 draw at Sporting Clube de Portugal.

On 27 January 2013, Evandro's successful strike during a 3–3 home draw to S.C. Olhanense received widespread media coverage. He finished his second season with a career-best 11 goals, as his team finished fourth and qualified to the Europa League.


Evandro signed with FC Porto for the 2014–15 campaign.[6]

International career[edit]

Evandro was part of the Brazilian team at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship held in the Netherlands, contributing with six scoreless appearances for the eventual third-placed nation.[7]
