Born in Covilhã, Margaça's input at the professional level in his country consisted of six Segunda Liga games with F.C. Alverca in 2004–05. At the end of the season the club folded, and he went on to resume his career in the lower leagues.
In the 2008 summer, Margaça moved to the Cypriot First Division where he would remain until his retirement more than one decade later. He started out at Doxa Katokopias FC, signing with AEK Larnaca F.C. two years later.
At youth level, Margaça earned 11 caps for Portugal. On 17 March 2017, after being awarded the country's citizenship, he was called up to the Cyprus national team, making his debut five days later in a 3–1 friendly win over Kazakhstan where he was involved in two of the goals.
