Wanderson Souza Carneiro (born 23 February 1987), known as Baiano, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club S.C. Braga as a right back.[1]

Football career[edit]

Born in Correntina, Bahia, Baiano spent most of his career in his country in the lower leagues. His professional input consisted of six Série B games for Vila Nova Futebol Clube, who finished in 20th and last position.

In late July 2008, Baiano moved to Portugal where he would remain the following decade, starting with C.F. Os Belenenses.[2] He appeared rarely for the Lisbon-based club in his only season, as the team suffered relegation from the Primeira Liga only to be reinstated due to C.F. Estrela da Amadora's financial irregularities.

Baiano signed with fellow league side F.C. Paços de Ferreira in the 2009 summer, where his performances were eventually noted.[3][4] He scored his first goal in the Portuguese top division on 19 September 2010, helping to a 2–2 home draw against S.C. Braga.

In the 2011 off-season, Baiano joined Braga on a free transfer.[5] In the 2015–16 campaign he played 42 competitive games, including the final of the Taça de Portugal, won on penalties against FC Porto after a 2–2 draw in 120 minutes.[6]
