Carlos Ilídio Moreno Gomes (born 7 December 1970), known as Piguita, is a Cape Verdean retired footballer who played as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Piguita was born in Praia. He arrived in Portugal at the age of 22 from Sporting Clube da Praia, suffering two consecutive Primeira Liga relegations with F.C. Famalicão and S.C. Beira-Mar.

After one year in the third division with Portimonense SC, Piguita signed for S.C. Covilhã in the second level. He went on to remain with the club for 11 years, appearing in nearly 300 official games and achieving three promotions to division two.

Piguita retired at nearly 40, after three seasons with four teams in Portuguese amateur football.
