From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ruy Seabra (born 1947) is a Portuguese lawyer and was briefly a football manager.

He had any experience he was announced as the surprise choice of then President of the Portuguese Football Federation, Silva Resende, for manager of the Portuguese national football team, after the disappointing presence at the 1986 World Cup finals, mostly due to the infamous Saltillo Affair.

Seabra was officially the team selecter, while Juca would be the coach for the UEFA Euro 1988 qualifyings. The absence of all the members of the National Team present at the recent World Cup, made the mission of qualifying almost impossible. The unlikely partnership lasted 6 matches, with 1 win, 4 draws and 1 loss. After the humiliating 2–2 draw with Malta, Seabra resigned and Juca assumed full functions for the rest of the qualifyings.
