Just realized a thread was not made about this which is not right.

Rest in piece to FC Porto and Portugal legend Fernando Gomes who passed away on November 26 2022.

Fernando Gomes is FC Porto’s all time leading goal scorer with 355 goals. Furthermore Fernando Gomes is a two time recipient of the golden boot award in both 1983 and 1985 where he led all of Europe in goals thus garnishing the nickname in Portugal as “Bi-Bota” translating to back to back golden boot.

Maybe not a house hold name to a lot of you but a legend nonetheless who deserves the utmost respect.

Even as a rival he and the club deserve respect.
