Afonso Alves Martins Júnior (born 30 January 1981) is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Qatar side Al Rayyan Sports Club as a striker. He has also been capped by Brazil. He enjoyed the most successful period of his career during his time in Heerenveen in the Dutch league, where his goal-to-game ratio was higher than a goal a game. This precipitated a club record move to English club Middlesbrough, the transfer completed on the last day of the transfer window in January 2008.
