Fernando da Silva Cabrita (born Lagoa, Algarve, 1 May 1923) is a former Portuguese footballer and football manager.

He played as a forward for minor teams like Olhanense and Sporting da Covilhã, but he still had 7 caps for Portugal National Team, 4 for Olhanense and 3 for Sporting da Covilhã. His debut was at a 2–2 draw with Spain, in 11 March 1945, and his last game was a 0–3 lost to Brazil, in 16 June 1957, aged thirty four.

He was the National Team manager for nine games, in the season of 1983/84, after the resignation of Otto Glória. He lead a technical commission with three other members : Toni, António Morais and José Augusto. He achieved the first ever qualification for Portugal for the Euro Cup finals, in 1984, where Portugal reached the semi-finals, losing 2–3 with France, in extra-time.
