Joãozinho (literally little João) full name João Soares de Almeida Neto (born 30 January 1980) is a Brazilian footballer, currently playing for Camaçari Futebol Clube.

He also known as Joãozinho Neto to avoid confusion with other Joãozinho, like his former teammate at Portuguesa, Joãozinho. As he has the same surname as his grandfather, he has a suffix Neto (means grandson) in his name. However, his composite surname is Soares Almeida, which is the fusion of the surnames of his father and mother.
