Luiz Henrique Camargo (born 4 May 1987 in Vinhedo) is a Brazilian footballer.

Club career[edit]

Luiz Camargo began his career in his native Brazil with Mogi Mirim. In 2009, he moved to Brazilian second division side Paraná, where he quickly established himself as a starter in central midfield for the club.

During the 2011 season, Camargo was sent on loan to Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo. He joined a struggling Dynamo side during the latter part of the 2011 season. Camargo and his teammates' late-season performances led the club to a playoff berth and eventual place in the 2011 MLS Cup Final. At the conclusion of the season, Houston reached an agreement with Paraná to retain the Brazilian's services.[1] Camargo played his first match of 2012 in a 1–0 reserve division win over the Colorado Rapids. In 2013 Camargo has scored 1 goal in three Dynamo reserve games showing confidence while controlling the flow of play for the dynamo on the field.

Camargo was waived by Houston on 26 June 2013.[2]

Personal life[edit]

On 15 March 2012, Camargo's wife gave birth to the couple's son named Pedro in Houston, Texas.[3]
