Eliseu Pereira dos Santos (born 1 October 1983), simply Eliseu, is a Portuguese footballer who currently plays for Real Zaragoza on loan from S.S. Lazio in the Italian first division.

A winger, he is mostly known for his blazing speed.


Club career

Born in Angra do Heroísmo, Azores, to a Cape Verdean mother and a Portuguese father, Eliseu moved to Portugal's mainland in 2002, moving from Sport Clube Marítimo de Angra do Heroísmo to C.F. Os Belenenses. He gradually broke into the Lisbon-based club's first team, appearing in 19 matches during his second season.

After a loan with Varzim SC in the second level, Eliseu continued to be a relatively important offensive player for Belenenses. However, in 2007–08, he, alongside countrymen Hélder Rosário and Paulo Jorge, moved to Málaga CF, helping the Andalusians to top level return after a two-year absence, with the Portuguese trio totalling 108 matches and six goals combined (three from Eliseu).

In 2008–09, Eliseu continued to be firmly established in the side's starting XI, netting his first La Liga goal(s) in a 4–0 away win over neighbours Recreativo de Huelva on 5 October 2008. The following month, he also scored, in a 3–4 loss at Real Madrid.

On 25 June 2009, Eliseu joined S.S. Lazio in Italy for exactly 1 million.[1] However, after receiving few opportunities, he joined Real Zaragoza on 7 January of the following year, on loan until the end of the season.[2] He scored in only his second match for the Aragonese, which lost 2–4 at Villarreal CF.

International career

Courtesy of his Málaga performances, Eliseu was first called to the Portuguese national team for a friendly match with Finland on 11 February 2009, but did not leave the bench.

He finally made his debut on 10 June in a 0–0 friendly match against Estonia.
