Hugo Ventura Ferreira Moura Guedes (born 14 January 1988), known as Ventura, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for C.F. Os Belenenses as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto District, Ventura joined FC Porto's youth system at the age of 10. He only appeared in two Primeira Liga games during his tenure with the club, the first occurring on 10 May 2008 in a 2–0 away win against Associação Naval 1º de Maio.[1] Until the end of his contract, he was successively loaned to S.C. Olhanense (twice),[2][3] Portimonense S.C.[4] and Sporting Clube de Portugal;[5] with Porto, he was also included in the main squad on 18 September 2007 in a 1–1 at home against Liverpool in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League[6] and on 21 October of the following year for a 0–1 home defeat to FC Dynamo Kyiv in the same competition.[7]

Late into the 2014 January transfer window, Ventura signed with Rio Ave F.C., also in the top level.[8] In the summer he joined fellow league team C.F. Os Belenenses,[9] where he eventually beat competition from Englishman Matt Jones.[10]

International career[edit]

Ventura gained 37 caps for Portugal at youth level, including 13 for the under-21s. On 3 February 2011 he was called up for the first time to the full side by coach Paulo Bento for a friendly with Argentina in Geneva, Switzerland,[11] receiving his second selection in March 2015 after being summoned by Fernando Santos ahead of a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Serbia[12] and being retained as an unused substitute later that month in a 0–2 defeat to Cape Verde in Estoril.[13]
