Jefferson Nascimento (born 5 July 1988) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Sporting Clube de Portugal as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Campo Formoso, Bahia, Jefferson represented in his country Associação Desportiva São Caetano, Guaratinguetá Futebol, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, Grêmio Barueri Futebol, Fluminense FC, Clube Náutico Capibaribe[1] and Santa Cruz Futebol Clube.[2] His Série A input consisted of 11 games in representation of the third and fifth clubs, during three separate seasons; interspersed with that, he had a one-year spell in Portugal with G.D. Estoril Praia.

Jefferson returned to Estoril for the 2012–13 campaign, with the team now in the Primeira Liga. He scored his first goal as a professional on 11 November 2012 to help to a 2–0 home defeat of Moreirense FC,[3] and also found the net against Sporting Clube de Portugal (3–1 home win)[4] and S.L. Benfica (1–1, away)[5] in an eventual fifth-place finish, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Europa League; most of his five successful strikes across all competitions came from long-distance shots.[6]

On 7 June 2013, Jefferson signed a four-year contract with Sporting.[7] He netted twice in 26 games in his debut season, helping to a runner-up position.

In April 2014, Jefferson celebrated his 50th appearance in the Portuguese top division, in a match against F.C. Paços de Ferreira.[8]
