António Augusto Gomes de Sousa (born April 28, 1957 in São João da Madeira; Portuguese pronunciation: [ɐ̃ˈtɔniu ˈso(u)zɐ]) is a former Portuguese footballer, who played as a central midfielder.

During his career he played, among others, for F.C. Porto and Sporting Clube de Portugal.

Football career

Sousa was national champion and winner of the Cup of Portugal for F.C. Porto several times, before moving to Sporting Clube de Portugal in 1984–85.

In 1987 he won the European Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and the UEFA Super Cup with the northern side.

Sousa received 27 caps for the Portuguese national team, from 1981 to 1989, playing at UEFA Euro 1984, where he scored the goal in the tie against Spain (1–1), and at the 1986 FIFA World Cup.

After the end of his playing career in 1996, at 39, Sousa became a coach (although he served as a player-manager in his last year, with hometown's A.D. Sanjoanense).

Personal

Sousa's son, Ricardo, is also a professional footballer, also in midfield. He was a youth graduate, albeit with no success, at Porto, and represented several teams in different countries, mainly Boavista FC.
