Joaquim da Silva Carvalho (born 18 April 1937) is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Barreiro, Setúbal, Carvalho started playing football with local Luso Futebol Clube, transferring in 1958 to Sporting Clube de Portugal where he remained for the following 12 years, winning five major titles. He was in goal as the Lisbon side defeated MTK Budapest FC to conquer the 1963–64 edition of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.[1]

Carvalho appeared in 251 games with his main club, friendlies included. He retired in 1972 at the age of 35 after a spell with neighbouring Atlético Clube de Portugal, subsequently returning to the Lions as a goalkeeper coach.[2]

International career[edit]

Carvalho played six times with the Portugal national team, making his debut on 31 October 1965 in a 0–0 draw with Czechoslovakia for the 1966 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. Selected for the finals in England, he featured in the opener against Hungary (3–1 win in Manchester) but lost his place to C.F. Os Belenenses' José Pereira for the remainder of the tournament, with the country finishing in third place.[3]
