Rui Pedro dos Santos PatrĂ­cio is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Portugal national team.

Before moving to England, he spent most of his career with Sporting CP, making his first team debut at the age of 18 and going on to appear in 467 official games. He won five trophies during his 12-years with the club, including two Portuguese Cups .

European Championships , winning the 2016 edition of the latter tournament as well as the 2019 Nations League
