Also known as Ricardo Eloy he began his career at Angolan club Petro Atletico in his hometown of Luanda. He made his debut for the Angolan national team in 2004 against Nigeria, and has been a regular feature in the side since. His bright and promising performances for Angola on the right wing at the 2006 World Cup earned him a move to Romanian club Dinamo Bucureşti where in his first season he was part of the Liga I Championship winning squad.
In June 2006 he did not attend Dinamo's pre-season reunion after the summer break. Following this he was loaned out to Portuguese side Boavista for the duration of the 2007–08 season.
He was named in the Angolan squad for the 2008 African Cup of Nations in Ghana where he came on as a substitute in the Angolans' first game against South Africa. His impressive performance earned him a recall to the starting eleven for the second game against Senegal where he played the full 90 minute in sterling style, setting up striker Manucho's headed goal during his sides 3–1 victory.
