The 25-year-old scored both goals in Estoril’s 2-2 draw against Liga champions Porto in the Taca da Liga on Sunday. Vitoria has begun to draw the attention of many larger clubs with his great performances this season. His contract is reportedly over at the end of this season.

The Canadian-born defender has also scored 4 goals in the Liga so far this season and it is believed that Portugal manager Paulo Bento has kept a close eye on Vitoria. He is eligible to play for both Canada and Portugal but has played for his parent’s homeland at the junior level.

Estoril were promoted to Portugal’s top flight this season. They have been one of the great stories so far this year in the league where they currently stand in sixth spot. Estoril is a beautiful western suburb of the Portuguese capital, most famous for its sandy beaches and for the Casino Estoril, the largest in Europe.
