Ricardo Filipe da Silva Braga(born 3 September 1985), best known as Ricardinho, is a Portuguese professional futsal player who plays for French club Asnieres Villeneuve and the Portugal national team as a winger.
Nicknamed O Mágico (The Magician), he was named Best Player of the World a record 6 times by Futsal Planet in 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Ricardinho is the only player to have won the award more than four times, being the only Portuguese player to receive it. In 2020 he was awarded a spot in the FutsalFeed's Best Team of the Year Award, the first time this award was conceived.
At international club level, Ricardinho has won the UEFA Futsal Cup, now known as the UEFA Futsal Champions League, thrice, in 2009–10 with Benfica and in 2016–17 and 2017–18 with Inter FS. As a teenager he had already played and lost a final in 2003–04, for Benfica, against Boomerang Interviú. He also lost another final, while at Inter FS, in 2015–16, against Gazprom-Ugra. In European competitions with his country, he won the UEFA Futsal Euro 2018, in which he finished as top scorer and received the award for Best Player. He had already been named the Best Player in the 2007 edition and been joint-top scorer in the 2016 edition. He is now the all-time top scorer of the competition.
In 2021, right after his last World Cup match, Ricardinho was awarded with the Golden Ball,  adding another individual achievement to his 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup Golden Shoe that he had been, previously, awarded with. This distinction was strongly associated with his contributions to help Portugal win the 2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup. Ricardinho captained his Portuguese national team to its first two major international trophies, doing it so back-to-back: the UEFA Futsal Euro 2018 and the 2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup.
Ricardinho is lauded by his defensive quality and workrate, which is very uncommon for a player of such significant offensive prowess, making him very well-rounded. For all his achievements and quality displays, he has been regarded by several experts as one of the greatest futsal players of all time.
