Vasco Paciência has signed contract with Sport Lisboa e Benfica until 2023. The 18-year old player comes from Boavista.

Domingos’ son – former striker of FC Porto and of the National Team – and Gonçalo Paciência’s brother, the Benfica’s new signing represented the “axadrezados and had been working with the club’s first team. Was called for three Liga NOS matches (did not play) and the coach, Jorge Simão, praised him in public.

Vasco Paciência will be a serious case. The people of my generation remember Domingos and there is a resemblance in the way he plays, he has the same characteristics. In addition, he has a strong mental structure.
