Man City vs Braga - Pedro Tiba Goal 3 minutes
Pedro Miguel Amorim Pereira Silva (born 31 August 1988), known as Tiba, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for G.D. Chaves as an attacking midfielder.
Born in Arcos de Valdevez, Viana do Castelo, Tiba played until the age of 25 in the Portuguese third division or lower. He represented during this timeframe C.A. Valdevez, S.C. Valenciano, AD Os Limianos and F.C. Tirsense; his professional debuts were made, however, in the Greek second level with Kastoria FC, for which he appeared from February–June 2008.
In the 2013 summer, Tiba signed with Vitória F.C. in the Primeira Liga. He played his first game in the competition on 25 August, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–2 away loss against Rio Ave FC. He totalled 30 official appearances in his only season at the Estádio do Bonfim, scoring a late equaliser for a 1–1 home draw against S.C. Braga on 21 April 2014.
On 3 July 2014, Tiba joined Braga on a one-year deal for €500,000. He missed only two games in his debut campaign, one being for his dismissal for handball on 24 April 2015 after scoring in a 1–1 home draw against C.F. Os Belenenses; previously, on 7 January, against the same opposition, he concluded in a 7–1 win in the quarter-finals of the Taça de Portugal, but was an unused substitute in the final loss to Sporting Clube de Portugal.
Tiba never played for Portugal at any youth level. In September 2014 he was selected by full side manager Paulo Bento for a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Albania, to be played on the 7th in Aveiro, but did not take to the field in the 0–1 defeat.
