Hugo Cardoso Porfírio (born September 28, 1973 in Lisbon) is a former Portuguese footballer, who played mostly as a winger.

Football career

Porfírio graduated from Sporting Clube de Portugal's famed youth academy, joining the professionals for 1992–93, alongside midfielder Emílio Peixe. After some appearances as a substitute, he had loan spells with F.C. Tirsense and União de Leiria.

After impressive displays with the latter, he earned an international callup. After making his debut on May 29, 1996, in a 1–0 win over Ireland, in Dublin, Porfírio made the nation's squad-of-22 for UEFA Euro 1996, playing 15 minutes in the 1–0 group stage win against Turkey.

Some months later, he was also in the roster at the 1996 Olympic Games, where Portugal finished fourth, its best result ever in the competition. On November 9, he received his last cap for the A-side, a 1–0 home success against Ukraine for the 1998 World Cup qualifiers.

He returned to Sporting for 1996–97, but soon moved on loan to England's West Ham United. There, he scored four goals in all competitions: against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup,[1] Wrexham in the FA Cup[2] and Blackburn Rovers[3] and Chelsea in the league.[4] Released by Sporting in June 1997, Porfírio spent one season with La Liga side Racing de Santander. Netting once during the season in a 2–2 draw at CD Tenerife, he was also sent off twice.

In 1998–99, Porfírio joined Sporting neighbours S.L. Benfica, being loaned in the January transfer window to Nottingham Forest, where he appeared sparingly and scored once, against Sheffield Wednesday.[5] Porfírio returned to Benfica in July, being loaned the following season to C.S. Marítimo and demoted to (soon extinct) Benfica B during two entire seasons.

Subsequently, Porfírio had short spells, playing with modest Portuguese outfits (Sociedade União 1º Dezembro and Clube Oriental de Lisboa), retiring in 2008, after a season in Saudi Arabia with Al-Nassr.
