Club career[edit]

Benfica[edit]

Born in Vieira do Minho, Braga District, Ribeiro started playing football at Escola Os Craques when he was 9. He joined S.C. Braga's academy four years later and, at the age of 13, signed for S.L. Benfica, where he went on to finish his development and win the 2013 juvenile national championship.[1]

Ribeiro made his senior debut for Benfica's reserves on 29 May 2015, starting in a 2–1 home win over Vitória S.C. B for the Segunda Liga.[2] He started the following season as a backup to Pedro Rebocho but was called to action when the latter injured himself at Varzim SC.[3]

Ribeiro first appeared in official matches with the first-team on 14 December 2016, playing the entire 3–0 away victory over Real S.C. for the campaign's Taça de Portugal.[4][5] The following 3 January, he also started against F.C. Vizela for the Taça da Liga (4–0 win at the Estádio da Luz, for the group stage).[6]

On 30 June 2017, Ribeiro joined Rio Ave F.C. on a season-long loan deal.[7][8] His maiden appearance in the Primeira Liga took place on 7 August, in a 1–0 home defeat of C.F. Os Belenenses.[9][10]

Ribeiro returned to Benfica for the 2018–19 campaign, extending his contract with the club for an additional five years.[11] On 14 February 2019, he made his European debut as Benfica beat Galatasaray 2–1 in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 32, their first ever victory in Turkey.[12]

Nottingham Forest[edit]

On 8 July 2019, Ribeiro joined English side Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal, along with Benfica teammate Alfa Semedo, who also moved to the City Ground, but on a season-long loan.[13]

International career[edit]

Ribeiro represented Portugal in the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, helping his team reach the semi-finals, where they lost to eventual winners England.[14] On 7 July 2016, he was selected by the under-19 side for that year's European Championship in Germany.[15]

Ribeiro won his first cap for the under-21s on 2 September 2016 at 19, featuring the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 home draw to Israel for the 2017 European Championship qualifiers.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Ribeiro's father was a goalkeeper, and his older brother, Romeu, also played for Benfica and Portugal at youth level.[17]
