Fernando Mendes Soares Gomes (born 22 November 1956 in Porto) is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a striker.

He achieved great success with Futebol Clube do Porto during the late 1970s and 80s. While technically only a good player, his talent resided on a fantastic position sense, which made him very dangerous inside the six-yard box.

The recipient of nearly 50 caps for Portugal, Gomes represented the nation in one World Cup and one European Championship.
