Club career
Born in Porto, a young Ângelo Martins turned down an opportunity to play for FC Porto because he was a supporter of Lisbon rivals S.L. Benfica.
In 1945, aged 15, Ângelo started playing as a left defender for Académico do Porto, where he spent three years until he was scammed by an FC Porto staff member, who gave him a false document and made him sign for the club while he still was an Académico do Porto player. As a result, the Portuguese Football Federation punished Ângelo for a few months.
While Ângelo was serving in the military in Santarém, a Benfica scout watched him play and brought him to Lisbon at age 20. During his 13 seasons with The Eagles, from 1952 to 1965, he made 285 appearances and scored 4 goals, winning 7 Primeira Liga titles, 5 Taça de Portugal, 1 Taça de Honra, and 2 consecutive European Cups (in 1961 and 1962).
National team
Ângelo played for Portugal on 20 occasions. He made his debut in 1953 against Austria at the Prater Stadium and played his final match for the country in 1962 against Bulgaria at the Estádio do Restelo.
