Salvador José Milhazes Agra (born 11 November 1991) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for C.D. Nacional as a winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Vila do Conde, Agra began his career with Varzim SC, joining the club's youth ranks at the age of 13. He made his senior debuts in the 2010–11 season, being a very important attacking unit – only one league game missed – as the Póvoa de Varzim team was finally relegated from the second division.

Agra signed for S.C. Olhanense in the 2011 summer,[1] penning a three-year contract with the Algarve side on 8 July.[2] He made his Primeira Liga debut on 13 August, playing 15 minutes in a 1–1 away draw against Sporting Clube de Portugal.

In late January 2012, Agra joined Spanish club Real Betis who paid 300.000 for 60% of his rights,[3][4] but stayed with Olhanense until the end of the campaign. He appeared in just 14 competitive matches during his spell in Andalusia – scoring his only goal in a 2–4 La Liga home loss to Atlético Madrid[5]– being successively loaned to A.C. Siena,[6] S.C. Braga and Académica de Coimbra.[7]

On 28 June 2015, Agra cut ties with Betis and signed a four-year contract with C.D. Nacional.[8]

International career[edit]

Agra gained 15 caps for Portugal at youth level, including eight for the under-21 team. His first arrived on 5 September 2011, when he played the last 12 minutes of a 1–0 friendly win over France.[9]
