Nuno Miguel Soares Pereira Ribeiro (born 5 July 1976), commonly known as Nuno Gomes, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for S.C. Braga as a striker.

He was given the nickname Gomes during childhood after F.C. Porto great Fernando Gomes, and was one of the country's most recognisable offensive players in the '90s/2000s; he consistently scored for both club and country, and was capable of being a good link-up player, accumulating a number of assists throughout his career, which was spent mainly with Benfica, for which he netted 166 times in 398 games, over the course of 12 professional seasons.

Gomes represented Portugal in two World Cups and three European Championships - helping the national team finish third at Euro 2000 - winning more than 100 caps all categories comprised (nearly 80 for the senior side alone).
