Full name is: Nuno Miguel Soares Paulo Ribeiro.

An excellent striker, Nuno began his playing career at Amarante before signing for Boavista in 1994.

It was here that he made a name for himself and he made his international debut in January 1996 against France.

He had an excellent scoring record at Under-21 level but did not score for the full side for fifteen and matches.

Nuno made the 1996 and 2000 European Championship final squads forming an excellent partnership with Joao Pinto.

His excellent performances at the 2000 European Championship finals, despite earning him a ban for consistently arguing with the referee in the semi-final, earned him a move to Italy to play for Fiorentina in July 2000.

He has excellent pace, movement and an eye for goal.

Nuno scored Portugal's consolation goal in their 1-3 3rd Place Play-Off defeat by Germany at the 2006 World Cup finals.

He joined Blackburn Rovers in July 2012 with a two-year contract that was cancelled in June 2013.
