Hermenegildo da Costa Paulo Bartolomeu,[2] simply known as Geraldo (born November 23, 1991),[3] is an Angolan international football midfielder.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Luanda, he started his career in 2009, defending Angolan club Norberto de Castro,[1] moving in the same year to Brazilian club Rio Claro,[1] playing in the 2009 Copa São Paulo de Juniores.[4] He joined Andraus of Curitiba after leaving Rio Claro.[4]

Coritiba[edit]

In July 2009, after being observed by head coach René Simões in a friendly game between the reserve squads of Coritiba and Andraus, he was transferred to Coritiba youth team.[1][4] He joined Coritiba's main squad in 2010,[1] playing his first Série B game on May 8, 2010, at Estádio dos Aflitos, Recife, when his club was defeated 3-1 to Náutico and he came as a substitute for Renatinho.[5] He scored his first Série B goal for Coritiba on November 20, 2010, when he scored a goal against Icasa at Romeirão stadium,[6] thus helping his team win the 2010 edition of the league.[7] Geraldo played his first Série A game on May 22, 2011, when he came up as a substitute for Lucas Mendes in the game against Atlético Goianiense, at Estádio Couto Pereira, won 1-0 by the opponent team.[8]

Paraná[edit]

Geraldo was loaned to Coritiba's fellow Curitiba-based club Paraná on July 4, 2012.[9]

D'Agosto[edit]

Geraldo played 3 seasons for Primeiro de Agosto. Whereas in the first season he may have been overshadowed by the likes of Gelson and Ary Papel, after they moved overseas, he undisputably became the club's biggest asset, finishing all three seasons and the beginning of the 2018–19 with 31 goals, winning 3 league titles and one super cup.

Al Ahly[edit]

In the aftermath of D'Agosto's brilliant performance in 2018 where they reached the semi-finals of the champions league, he signed in with African giant Al Ahly SC.[10] He appeared several times on different occasions with Al Ahly SC in which he surprised, yet he never had a regular basises game time.

National team[edit]

The player's first game for the Angolan national team was played in Houston, United States, on May 13, 2010, in his country defeat against Mexico 1-0, when he came as a substitute for Minguito.[11] He played his second game for the Angolan national team on August 11, 2010, when his country was defeated 2-0 by Uruguay at Estádio do Restelo, Lisbon, Portugal.[12] Geraldo played his third game for Angola on September 4, 2010, when his country was defeated 3-0 by Uganda at Mandela National Stadium, Kampala, Uganda.[13] He played his fourth game for his country on March 26, 2011, when his country was defeated 2-1 by Kenya at Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi, Kenya.[14]

Geraldo played three 2013 Africa Cup of Nations games. The first one, against Morocco on January 19,[15] the second one against South Africa on January 23,[16] and the last one on January 27, against Cape Verde, when he came out as a substitute for Gilberto.[17]
