    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, OIH, (born 5 February 1985), commonly known as Cristiano Ronaldo, is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a winger or striker for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and is the captain of the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo became the most expensive footballer in history after moving from Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer worth £80 million (€93.9 million/$131.6 million). In addition, his contract with Real Madrid, in which he is paid €12 million per year, makes him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world, and his buyout clause is valued at €1 billion as per his contract. In 2012, Diego Maradona declared that Ronaldo was "the best player on the planet." Ronaldo began his career as a youth player for Andorinha, where he played for two years, before moving to C.D. Nacional. In 1997, he made a move to Portuguese giants Sporting Clube de Portugal. Ronaldo's precocious talent caught the attention of Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, who signed him for £12.24 million (€15 million) in 2003. The following season, Ronaldo won his first club honour, the FA Cup. He also played at Euro 2004 with Portugal and scored his first

    César Peixoto

    Paulo César Silva Peixoto (born 12 May 1980) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Gil Vicente FC. Mainly a left midfielder, he can occasionally occupy the left back position. After playing his first two professional seasons at lowly Clube Caçadores das Taipas (based on Caldas das Taipas near Guimarães, where he was born), Peixoto's ability as a left winger allowed him to jump from the fourth division straight into the top flight with C.F. Os Belenenses, thanks to former player João Cardoso. He would score seven goals in his debut season, one of them a long range shot closing a 3–0 win against F.C. Porto at the Estádio do Restelo. In July 2002, he signed with Porto, going on to be managed for two years by José Mourinho. However, Peixoto's Porto career did not go as planned: while talented, he failed to impose in the first team, and in his first season only played 15 matches, scoring three goals. Mourinho was still convinced of his abilities, so he refused to release him. Again with a slow start, he was starting to keep up with high profile players such as Benni McCarthy, Derlei and Deco when, after netting in two consecutive league games in 4–1 wins, he was seriously injured in

    Carmen Miranda

    Carmen Miranda

    Carmen Miranda, GCIH (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈkaɾmẽȷ̃ miˈɾɐ̃dɐ], 9 February 1909 – 5 August 1955) was a Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer, Broadway actress and Hollywood film star popular in the 1940s and 1950s. She was, by some accounts, the highest-earning woman in the United States and noted for her signature fruit hat outfit she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here. Though hailed as a talented performer, her movie roles in the United States soon became cartoonish and she grew to resent them. She is considered the precursor of Brazil's Tropicalismo. Carmen Miranda was born Maria do Carmo Miranda da Cunha in Várzea da Ovelha e Aliviada, a village in the northern Portuguese municipality of Marco de Canaveses. She was the second daughter of José Maria Pinto da Cunha (17 February 1887 – 21 June 1938) and Maria Emília Miranda (10 March 1886 – Rio de Janeiro, 9 November 1971). In 1909 when she was 10-months old, her father emigrated alone to Brazil and settled in Rio de Janeiro, where he opened a barber shop. Her mother followed in 1910 with their daughters Olinda and Maria do Carmo. Maria do Carmo, later Carmen, never returned to Portugal, but retained her Portuguese
