Vieirinha (born January 24, 1986)

VieirinhaFlamboyant attacking midfielder Vieirinha was named the Player of the Tournament at the European Under-17 Football Championships in 2003, and the Vitoria Guimaraes youth player was quickly heralded as a star of the future. A move to FC Porto followed, and Vieirinha continued his ascent through the various levels of youth international football, while also spending a highly-productive loan spell with Leixoes during the 2007/08 campaign.

However, with opportunities likely to be scarce on his return to the Dragao, Vieirinha decided to try his luck abroad with Greek outfit PAOK. Playing under Fernando Santos, Vieirinha made a bright start at his new club, before a serious knee injury picked up in September saw him out of action until the New Year. He returned to full fitness in January 2009, scoring his first goal for the club on his third match following his comeback.

Edinho (born July 7, 1982)

EdinhoAveiro-born striker Edinho used a six-month loan spell with AEK in 2008 to earn a permanent contract with the club. Edinho joined the Greeks from Vitoria Setubal, and notched 8 goals in 13 league matches for AEK, including scoring in five consecutive matches. His form in Athens led to the club making his stay permanent, and Portugal manager Carlos Queiroz is reported to have already made the trip to Greece to watch the player in action.
