José Luís Mendes Andrade (born 24 January 1991), known as Zé Luís, is a Cape Verdean professional footballer who plays for Russian club FC Spartak Moscow as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Gil Vicente / Braga[edit]

Born in Fogo, Zé Luís began his professional career at the age 18 with his last youth club, Gil Vicente FC. In his first season he played in only five games for the Segunda Liga club – his debut coming on 29 November 2009 in a 0–3 home loss against G.D. Chaves – but managed to score four goals.[1][2][3]

In 2010–11, under new manager Paulo Alves,[4] Zé Luís netted ten times for the Barcelos side as they achieved promotion to the Primeira Liga after a five-year absence, as champions. On 2 June 2011, he signed for S.C. Braga on a five-year contract.[5]

Zé Luís served two loan spells during his tenure in Minho, spending three months with former club Gil[6] and one full season with Videoton FC in Hungary[7]– he also featured regularly for Braga B in the second tier. Back with Braga's main squad, on 7 April 2015, he scored his first career hat-trick, helping defeat Rio Ave F.C. 3–0 at home in the semi-finals of the Taça de Portugal (4–1 on aggregate);[8] he battled for position with Eder during the campaign,[9] finishing with 11 goals all competitions comprised.

Spartak Moscow[edit]

On 7 July 2015, Zé Luís signed with Russian Premier League club FC Spartak Moscow.[10]

International career[edit]

Zé Luís made his debut for Cape Verde on 24 May 2010, playing one minute in a friendly in Covilhã with Portugal, which was preparing for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.[11] He was selected by manager Lúcio Antunes for the squad that appeared at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, but withdrew for personal reasons.[12]

Zé Luís scored his first goal for the national team on 10 September 2014, opening the scoring in a 2–1 home win over Zambia in an eventually successful qualification campaign for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
