Felipe Almeida Félix (born 20 April 1985), known as Félix, is a Brazilian footballer who currently plays for Al-Orobah .

Football career[edit]

Born in Itanhaém, São Paulo, Félix finished his formation with Clube Atlético Paranaense.[1] He would only play amateur football in his country during his career, which started in Portugal with GD Os Nazarenos.

In 2008, Félix joined Russian Premier League club PFC Spartak Nalchik. He failed to score during his two-year tenure, also being loaned to Baku FC[2] and Rio Branco Esporte Clube.

In June 2010, Spartak declared that they had no intention to reinstate Félix in the squad, but expected to receive a fee from the Brazilian side that was vying for his services.[3] However, he eventually returned to Portugal and joined Leixões S.C. in the Segunda Liga.[4] He scored his first goal as a professional at nearly 26 years of age, contributing to a 3–3 away draw against S.C. Freamunde.[5]

Félix competed in Hungary, Brazil and Japan in the following years, playing top flight football with Ferencvárosi TC. In 2014, he switched to the China League One with Beijing Baxy FC,[6] joining fellow league team Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard F.C. the following year.[7]

In April 2018 after a 3-year absence from the professional game, Félix earned himself an opportunity to sign for Japanese side Giravanz Kitakyushu in the J3 League.
