Jorge Manuel Almeida Gomes de Andrade, OIH (-ptˈʒɔɾʒ(ɨ) ɐ̃ˈdɾad(ɨ); born 9 April 1978) is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a central defender.

After playing two years with Porto, he went on to represent Deportivo de La Coruña (which would be his main club - nearly 175 official appearances in five seasons) and Juventus, appearing rarely for the latter due to injury.

Andrade gained more than 50 caps for Portugal, representing the nation in one World Cup and one European Championship, and helping it finish second in Euro 2004.
