Ricardo Domingos Barbosa Pereira (born 6 October 1993), known simply as Ricardo, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for French club OGC Nice on loan from FC Porto as a winger but also as a fullback.

Club career[edit]

Guimarães[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Ricardo began playing youth football with local C.F. Benfica, signing in 2010 with Associação Naval 1º de Maio. He moved to Vitória S.C. after only one year, completing his formation with the Guimarães-based club.[1]

On 1 April 2012, Ricardo made his first-team – and Primeira Liga – debut, playing 12 minutes in a 3–1 home win against F.C. Paços de Ferreira. He scored six goals in as many games in the 2012–13 edition of the Portuguese Cup,[2] including the 2–1 winner in the final against S.L. Benfica as the Minho Province side won the tournament for the first time in its history.[3]

Porto[edit]

On 16 April 2013, before the season was over, Ricardo agreed to join FC Porto on 1 July, moving alongside teammate Tiago Rodrigues.[4] He alternated constantly between the first and the second teams during his early tenure, also being reconverted into a fullback by manager Paulo Fonseca.

In the 2015 summer, after only 33 first-team appearances in two seasons combined, Ricardo was loaned for two years to French club OGC Nice.[5]

International career[edit]

Ricardo gained 35 caps for Portugal at youth level, scoring 12 goals. He was part of the under-21 squad that finished second at the 2015 UEFA European Championship, contributing with four starting appearances and netting in the 5–0 semi-final drubbing of Germany.[6]

Ricardo was called up to the full side for the second time on 6 November 2015, ahead of friendlies against Russia and Luxembourg.[7] He made his debut in the former match, featuring eight minutes in the 0–1 loss in Krasnodar.[8]
