Ricardinho’s Great Achievements
What would Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross look like with the ball at their feet? Ricardinho is the answer. O Mágico (the magician), a tiny micro-genius of the two-player game, possesses a wide variety of skills.
His game figures are astounding. He appeared in over 160 games, scoring almost one goal each time. He was the only Portuguese recipient of the Best Player in the World title for six different years.
Ricardinho has received numerous individual honors and more than 30 collective awards, including three UEFA Futsal Cup titles, one at Benfica and two in Madrid.
The 2018 UEFA Futsal Championship victory by Portugal, the country’s first triumph in men’s futsal in Europe, was headed by Ricardinho. He came back in 2021 and guided Portugal to their first Futsal World Championship title. After this triumph, Ricardinho decided to retire from playing for the international team.
