Born on December 29, 1999 in Viana do Castelo (Portugal), he began his career in the youth teams at Vianense and Porto, before joining the ranks of SC Braga.

Since his debut, Trincão played 40 games for Braga's first team, scoring nine goals, and during his last season for the club he established himself as a major player.

As for the national team, the winger has played for the Portuguese U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams. With the U19 he won the European Championship in 2018 and was also the top scorer at the tournament (5 goals) and the top assister (3).

Skillful with a great left foot

In terms of style of play, the young Portuguese can play in any position up front, although he does especially well as a winger, both on the right or left side. He is a fast and very skillful player who has wonderful technique, good vision and a great shot. The Barça player is also an excellent dribbler which means he's very unpredictable for rival defences.
