Armindo Tué Na Bangna (born 24 October 1994) known as Bruma, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Sporting Clube de Portugal, as a winger.

Made his debut yesterday in the first half played for Sporting against Maritimo.


Name: Armindo Tue Na Bangna (known as 'Bruma')
Club: Sporting Lisbon B
Date of birth: 24/10/1994
Birthplace: Bissau, Republic of Guinea-Bissau
International appearances: Member of Portuguese U19 Squad
Nationality: Portugal
Need to know:
Bruma has been coveted by Premier League clubs in the past, with both Chelsea and City considering an offer for him in 2010. Since then his steady progress has continued, and after becoming a full member of the Portugal U-19 Squad, City are ready to launch a move for the forward before they're beaten to the punch. At home team Sporting, he's the latest young player to land the tag of the 'next Cristiano Ronaldo', though he has yet to make an appearance for their first team. Portuguese media outlet A Bola claim that Roberto Mancini has personally requested that City make a bid for the wonder-kid.
Five Facts

1) Bruma is the younger brother of Fulham youth player Buomesca Tue Na Bangna, better known as 'Mesca', who previously played in Chelsea's youth academy.

2) Though he was born in the African Republic of Guinea-Bissau, Bruma is a naturalised Portuguese and qualifies for their national team as a result.

3) The forward was brought to Sporting from agent Catio Baldé's football school in Guinea in 2007, and signed his first professional contract with the club in 2010.

4) The player has admitted that he attempts to copy Cristiano Ronaldo's playing style, and his skill and shooting ability combined with his pace are reminiscent of the former Manchester United man.

Scored 5 goals and made 2 assists in 4 games at the U20 World Cup this summer in Turkey.

He signed for Galatasaray last week for €10m plus bonuses and will make his debut later today.

Very impressive in his 25 minutes. Insanely fast, agile, brave. He should work on his passing a bit, and decision-making, but he was trying quite hard to impress on his debut so he'll easily iron these out IMO. Took a shot from 28m which was on target and timed at 117kmh, which the goalkeeper saved. All in all, very good debut. I expect him to feature against Real Madrid on tuesday :thumbsup:

He scored on his debut for Portugal U21 a few days a go and has now been called up to the Portugal A team in place of the suspended Ronaldo! :thumbsup:
