List of Portugal national football team captains

The first Portugal captain was Cândido de Oliveira, who captained Portugal in the international match against Spain on 18 December 1921. This was his only international appearance. Vítor Gonçalves captained Portugal in their first international on home soil, on 17 December 1922 against the same opponent. The first international captain to win a match was Jorge Vieira against Italy on 18 June 1925.

Since then, Cristiano Ronaldo went on to set the record for most captaincies of his country, with 91. Humberto Coelho, João Domingos Pinto, Vítor Baía, and Fernando Couto have all captained Portugal at least 40 times. This article includes matches in which the Portuguese Football Federation awarded full caps, despite FIFA not listing those matches as full internationals.
