Football career

Espinho was born in Mafra, Lisbon. During his career he played for Clube Desportivo Cova da Piedade, Académica de Coimbra, S.G. Sacavenense, C.F. Os Belenenses, S.C. Salgueiros, Vitória de Guimarães, F.C. Porto – arriving at the first division club at the ripe age of 35 and backing up legendary Vítor Baía during his two-year spell – and Vitória de Setúbal, retiring in June 2003 with a total of 249 Portuguese top flight games to his credit.

For Portugal Espinha earned six caps, including one at UEFA Euro 2000 against Germany in the group stages, keeping a clean sheet in the 3–0 win as the nation was already qualified and rested practically all its starting XI.[1] From 2007 onwards, he worked as a goalkeeper coach with several youth categories of the national team.
