Éverton Augusto de Barros Ribeiro (born 10 April 1989), known as Éverton Ribeiro, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder or winger for Emirati club Al-Ahli, and the Brazil national football team.

Formed at Corinthians, he was twice voted the best player in Série A while at Cruzeiro, and joined Al-Ahli for €15 million in 2014.

A full international since 2014, Ribeiro represented Brazil at the 2015 Copa América.

Club career[edit]

Born in Arujá, São Paulo, Éverton Ribeiro joined Corinthians' youth setup in 2001, aged ten, as a left back.[1] Promoted to the main squad in 2007 by manager Paulo César Carpegiani, he only appeared in four matches during that year, being relegated with the side.[2]

On 21 July 2008, after the arrival of Wellington Saci, Ribeiro was loaned to São Caetano,[3] being successfully converted to an attacking midfielder during his two-year spell at the side. He returned to Timão in January 2011,[4] but was sold to Coritiba for a R$ 1.5 million fee on 21 February.[5]

Ribeiro finished the 2012 campaign for Coxa as the club's topscorer in Série A along with teammate Deivid, with eight goals. On 8 January 2013 Cruzeiro reached an agreement with Coritiba for the player,[6] and he signed a four-year deal three days later.[7]

Ribeiro was a key attacking unit for Raposa during his two-year spell, along with Ricardo Goulart. He was also elected Série A's best player of the year twice in a row,[8][9] as his side was crowned champions twice.

After being linked to Manchester United, AC Milan[10] and AS Monaco during the 2015 winter transfer window, Ribeiro moved to Al-Ahli Dubai on 2 February 2015 for a reported fee of €15 million.[11]

International career[edit]

After representing Brazil in the under-20 level, Ribeiro was called up to the main for two matches against Colombia and Ecuador by new manager Dunga on 19 August 2014.[12] He made his debut against the former on 5 September, coming on as a substitute for Willian in a 1–0 win at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.[13]

On 5 May 2015, Ribeiro was called up for the year's Copa América, held in Chile.[14] In the quarter-final against Paraguay, he replaced goalscorer Robinho for the final three minutes of a 1–1 draw, and then missed in the penalty shootout which eliminated Brazil.[15]
