Tiago Filipe Figueiras Gomes (born 18 August 1985) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Portugal[edit]

Born in Vila Franca de Xira, Lisbon District, Gomes was part of the S.L. Benfica youth system for a few years, and his first professional seasons were also spent in the Lisbon area, with G.D. Estoril Praia, Clube Oriental de Lisboa and Odivelas FC.

He made his debut in Primeira Liga with another capital club, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, first appearing against Associação Naval 1º de Maio on 27 August 2006, and was a permanent fixture throughout the entire campaign, playing alongside another Benfica youth product, namesake Tiago Henrique Damil Gomes.

Steaua / Hércules[edit]

On 29 May 2008, after a two-month spell in Málaga CF in which he failed to make an official appearance due to delays in the arrival of his international transfer,[1] Gomes joined FC Steaua București on loan from Estrela, with the Romanian side retaining an option to buy him at the end of the season. In mid-July 2009 he was sold to Hércules CF in Spain for 400,000 upon signing a three-year contract with the Segunda División team.[2] He appeared in 37 league games and scored six goals in his first season, as the Alicante team returned to La Liga after a 13-year absence.

Gomes was again regularly used in 2010–11. On 24 April 2011 he netted his first Spanish top flight goal in a 1–0 home win against Deportivo de La Coruña,[3] adding a second two games later against Racing de Santander in a 2–3 home loss,[4] but Hércules was eventually relegated after only one year.

Blackpool[edit]

On 24 July 2012 Gomes signed a one-year deal with Football League Championship side Blackpool, after his contract with Hércules had expired.[5]

He made his competitive debut on 18 August by starting and playing 56 minutes in a 2–0 success at Millwall, and finished his first and only season with 27 overall appearances (no goals).

APOEL[edit]

On 14 June 2013 Gomes moved teams and countries again, penning a two-year contract with APOEL FC from Cyprus.[6] He made his debut against NK Maribor on 31 July, in a 1–1 home draw for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.[7] During the 2013–14 season he appeared in three games in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League, and helped his side conquer the treble of league,[8] Cup[9] and Super Cup.[10]

Gomes scored his first official goal for APOEL on 21 March 2015, in his team's 2–2 home draw against Apollon Limassol for the league playoffs.[11] In his second year, he played every game in his team's Champions League campaign.[12]

On 25 May 2015, one day after winning his second consecutive double, Gomes left the club as it was announced his contract would not be renewed.[13]

International career[edit]

Gomes made two appearances for Portugal at under-21 level, his first call-up being in March 2007.[14]
