Rafael Euclides Soares Camacho (born 22 May 2000) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Sporting CP.

Career[edit]

Born in Lisbon of Angolan descent,[1][2] Camacho joined Liverpool’s academy from Sporting CP at the end of the 2015–16 season following a successful trial. He is a versatile player who can play anywhere across the front line but had also featured at right back and wing back.[3][4]

Camacho was named on the substitutes' bench for the Merseyside Derby against Everton in the Premier League on 7 April 2018 as a late injury replacement for Alberto Moreno but did not make an appearance.[5] In December 2018 he was named on the bench for games against Burnley and Manchester United.[6] He made his senior debut in the FA Cup third round against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 7 January 2019,[7][8] and his league debut 12 days later, coming on as a late substitute in a 4–3 win over Crystal Palace.[9]

On 27 June 2019, Camacho rejoined Sporting on a five-year contract.[10]
