Fábio Alexandre Silva Nunes (born 24 July 1992) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a left winger for Greek club PAE Kerkyra.

Club career[edit]

Born in Portimão, Algarve, Nunes played youth football for four clubs, including local Portimonense S.C. from ages 9–13 and 14–18. On 17 January 2010, whilst still a junior, he made his professional debut, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 2–1 home win against G.D. Estoril Praia for the Segunda Liga championship; he spent the 2011–12 season on loan at Parma FC,[1] but only appeared for the Primavera side.

In the 2012 summer transfer window, Nunes joined Blackburn Rovers on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.[2] He made his debut in the Football League Championship on 22 August, starting in the 2–1 home victory over Hull City.[3]

On 24 January 2014, after only eight competitive appearances, Nunes returned to Italy by joining Serie B team U.S. Latina Calcio on a free transfer.[4] In July, he returned to his country and moved to C.F. Os Belenenses.[5]

Nunes appeared in 17 Primeira Liga games in his debut campaign,[6] having renewed his link in December 2014 until June 2017.[7] His first goal in the Portuguese top division came on 9 May 2015, as he scored a last-minute equalizer in a 1–1 away draw against Académica de Coimbra.[8]

International career[edit]

All categories comprised, Nunes won 27 caps for Portugal at youth level. His first match with the under-21s occurred on 15 October 2012, as he played the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 friendly home loss to Ukraine.[9]
