My Story

Born in Guinea-Bissau to a tailor mother and a footballer father, Luis Antonio Soares Cassama always enjoyed the best of both worlds. At the tender age of 6, Luis was already helping his mother tailoring. He remembers "my mum used to always make our clothes, for me, my brother and cousin, we used to always dress well". Around this time, Luis' mother passed way, pushing him to move to Portugal and beginning a career in professional football. In 1990, at 16 years of age, Luis signed his first contract for the Portuguese team, Boa Vista FC. During his 12 year stint, he played for the Portuguese National team for under 16s and 21s. After various injuries, in 2000, Luis decided to put an end to his stuttering career when he moved to France, where he played his last season for Grenoble FC.
