What is Paulo Sérgio Moreira Gonçalves?, Explain Paulo Sérgio Moreira Gonçalves

Paulo Sérgio Moreira Gonçalves (born 24 January 1984), known as Paulo Sérgio, is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a right winger.


He amassed Primeira Liga totals of 162 games and 13 goals over the course of eight seasons, appearing in the competition for Académica, Belenenses, Estrela da Amadora, Aves, Olhanense, Vitória de Guimarães and Arouca. He also competed professionally in Spain, Cyprus and Singapore, winning the S.League with Brunei DPMM.

Club career

Born in Lisbon, Paulo Sérgio started his career at local Sporting Clube de Portugal, but never appeared in the Primeira Liga with the first team. In April 2003, 10% of his economic rights were sold to an investment fund along with other youth products, and he would be loaned several times in the following years, for example spending two seasons with Lisbon neighbours C.F. Os Belenenses; on 25 November 2004, before leaving for the club, he appeared for the Lions in a 4–0 win at FC Dinamo Tbilisi for the season's UEFA Cup, coming on as a substitute for Roudolphe Douala in the 65th minute.

After one season with Portimonense S.C. in the second division, Sérgio was released by Sporting and signed with Spanish side UD Salamanca, appearing in roughly half of the games during the campaign as the Castile and León team finished ninth in the second level.

In the 2009 summer, Paulo Sérgio returned to his country and Algarve, signing for S.C. Olhanense who had just recently promoted to the top flight and being regularly played over the course of two seasons as the club managed to consecutively retain its division status. On 17 September 2010, he scored in a 2–0 home win against former team Portimonense, the first of two official goals during his tenure.

In the following years, Paulo Sérgio represented, in quick succession, Vitória de Guimarães, Cyprus' AEL Limassol, F.C. Arouca and Olhanense. In March 2015, after spending the first part of the campaign as a free agent, he joined Brunei DPMM FC of the S.League, replacing injured Craig Fagan. He scored a brace on his debut on 4 April, helping to a 3–2 win at Hougang United FC.

In the final league game of 2015, Paulo Sérgio netted twice in a 4–0 victory against Balestier Khalsa FC, and his team won their first-ever national championship.

International career

Paulo Sérgio played seven times in the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification, netting four goals. He was not, however, selected for the squad that appeared in the final tournament, which was held on home soil.

Previously, Sérgio appeared with the under-19s in the 2003 European Championship in Liechtenstein, scoring five times in as many matches as the national team lost in the final against Italy.
