Anderson Vieira Martins (born 21 August 1987) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a centre back for Vasco da Gama.
Born in Fortaleza, capital of Ceará state, Anderson Martins started his career with Bahia club Vitória. In December 2003 he signed a three-year contract and extended in March 2006 and in August 2007. He made his Brazilian Série B debut on 7 August 2007, at that time already known as Anderson Martins to disambiguate with team-mates Anderson Ferreira and Anderson Rodrigues. The team promoted to 2008 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A as the fourth place. He played 3 more seasons for Vitória, winning 2008 to 2010 Campeonato Baiano and 2010 Campeonato do Nordeste.
In December 2010 he was signed by Traffic Group as an investment (through subsidiary Desportivo Brasil) and loaned to Vasco da Gama in four-year deal.
In August Traffic Group (which owned the entire contract of Anderson) mutually agreed with him on a 4-year contract with El Jaish of Qatar, despite receiving offers from Portugal, Germany and France. He was persuaded by teammate Juninho who had a stint in Qatar, convincing him that football in Qatar is advanced and that it is a gateway to European clubs. He has stated his desire to join a European club after his contract with Al-Jaish is over.
His arrival to El Jaish was delayed until mid-season. He made his debut on 2 January 2012, scoring a free-kick goal.
He capped 3 times in 2005 Sendai Cup. Brazil was the champion.Vitória
