PLAYER PROFILE - Joao MOREIRA

The former Portugal age-group international joined the Navy Blues in the January transfer window in 2013 and made an immediate impact with his silky touch and deadly finishing.

Moreira helped guide the Navy Blues to an ASB Premiership and OFC Champions League double within the first four months of signing but he would suffer an injury setback after breaking his leg in a pre-season friendly with Western Springs in September of 2014.

The likeable Moreira recovered in time to be part of the Auckland City FC squad that won bronze at the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2014 but did not make an appearance in that campaign.

Moreira was a key figure in the club's 2015 OFC Champions League triumph and started the match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima at the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

An eye for goal, good at linking play, Moreira forms a deadly fulcrum for the attack whether combining with Ryan De Vries, Emiliano Tade or Micah Lea'alafa.
