Domingos, a three-time world champion from Portugal

The former goalkeeper represented the National Team on 130 occasions, winning three World Cups and five European Championships

Vítor Domingos, former goalkeeper of the National Team, passed away at the age of 83. He represented Portugal on 130 occasions, winning the 1960, 1962 and 1968 World Cups, as well as five European Championships, 1961, 1963, 1965, 1967 and 1973, and several editions of the Luso-Brazilian Games.

The 1960 World Cup in Madrid, the 8th won by the Portuguese team, had special significance, since it was the first tournament won on Spanish soil. As a player he represented the Sintra Hockey Club and CUF.

His achievements have earned him several distinctions. Grupo Desportivo Fabril – where Vítor Domingos played – paid tribute to the defender of the nets, naming the pavilion after him. He also received the Barreiro Recognized Award, in the area of Sports.

The wake will take place on Tuesday, starting at 17 pm at the Church of Lavradio, Barreiro. On Wednesday, November 1st, the body will be transported to the crematorium of Quinta do Conde, where the funeral will take place, starting at 15.30 pm.

A BOLA sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Vítor Domingos.
