  1. Petit

    Armando Gonçalves Teixeira, commonly known as Petit, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Boavista F.C. in the Portuguese third division, as a defensive midfielder. He received the moniker Petit because of his small frame, and also because he was born in France. He also became known as Pitbull by supporters because of his fierce approach, in addition to a powerful outside shot. After helping Boavista win its first and only Portuguese championship, he went on to amass more than 200 official appearances for Benfica, winning another three major titles. He also spent several seasons in Germany with 1. FC Köln, but his later years were marred by injury problems. A Portuguese international during the 2000s, Petit represented the nation in two World Cups – finishing fourth in the 2006 edition – and as many European Championships.
