Agostinho Vieira de Oliveira (born 5 February 1947 in Póvoa de Lanhoso) is a former Portuguese footballer and a current coach.

He had a brief stint with Portugal in 2002, and is currently assistant manager under Carlos Queiroz.

Football career

During his playing career, Oliveira played as defender for Sporting Clube de Braga.

His first managerial job was in 1983, immediately after retiring; he took the reins of his only club for two seasons. Oliveira took over from António Oliveira as the Portugal coach, in a temporary role before Luiz Felipe Scolari took over in 2002. He was in charge for four games, winning two, against Sweden (3-2) and Scotland (2-0) and drawing two (England and Tunisia, both 1-1).

Among others, he started Paulo Ferreira and Jorge Ribeiro's international careers. Oliveira was also coach of the U-21s and the Olympic national team, leading the latter to the 2004 Olympic Games tournament, where Portugal was eliminated in the first round.

In 2008, as Carlos Queiroz returned to the national team, he was named assistant manager.
