Club career

Born in Matosinhos, Zé Beto arrived at FC Porto at the age of 17, making his Primeira Liga debuts two years later with S.C. Beira-Mar, loaned. After three more seasons as a backup, he was made first-choice for the 1983–84 campaign.

Zé Beto was the starter when Porto lost 1–2 against Juventus F.C. in the 1983–84 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final, in controversial manner: losing his temper, the player assaulted the assistant referee with his own flag, being suspended by UEFA for a period of two years.

For the following seasons, Zé Beto kept an interesting battle for first-choice status with Pole Józef Młynarczyk (signed in January 1986), eventually losing his position, and being further demoted after the emergence of 18-year-old Vítor Baía. He was on the substitutes bench for the northerners' wins in both the European Cup and Intercontinental Cup, in 1987.

International career

After the defection of most of the Portugal national team following the Saltillo Affair at the 1986 FIFA World Cup, Zé Beto gained three international caps during the rest of that year and the following. He made his debut on 12 October 1986, in a 1–1 home draw against Sweden for the UEFA Euro 1988 qualifiers.

Previously, Zé Beto played in three out of four games at the 1979 FIFA World Youth Championship in Japan, as the under-20s reached the last-eight.
