Fernando da Conceição Cruz (born 12 August 1940) is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a left back.
Born in Lisbon, Cruz was already first-choice with S.L. Benfica at the age of 20, going on to win eight national championships with the club as well as four Portuguese Cups. He played in all five European Cup finals the side reached in the 60s, winning the 1961 and 1962 editions and appearing in 346 official games during his 11-year stint (one goal).
Cruz ended his playing career in June 1971, after one year with newly formed French team Paris Saint-Germain FC.
