Tiago Henrique Damil Gomes (born 29 July 1986) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a left-back for F.C. Alverca.


Club career

Gomes was born in Oeiras, Lisbon District. A product of S.L. Benfica's youth ranks, he spent his first two professional seasons on loan, only appearing for his parent club during pre-season, 2006–07 at C.F. Estrela da Amadora – in the Primeira Liga – where he played with namesake Tiago Filipe Figueiras Gomes, and the following at Poland's Zagłębie Lubin. [2]

In August 2008, Gomes signed for CA Osasuna on a free transfer, [3] making no competitive appearances for the Navarrese in his only season. [4] In the same period the following year he joined another Lisbon-based team, C.F. Os Belenenses, [5] where he also did not manage to be first choice and they suffered relegation at the end of the campaign.

International career

On 7 November 2014, Gomes was called up by new Portugal manager Fernando Santos for a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Armenia and a friendly with Argentina. [6] He made his debut in the latter, starting but leaving injured after 51 minutes in an eventual 1–0 win at Old Trafford. [7]
