Luiz Carlos Ferreira, best known as Luizinho (born in Nova Lima, Minas Gerais, Brasil, October 22, 1958) is a former association football player in defender role.

During his career which spanned the years form 1975 to 1996 he played initially for Villa Nova AC of Nova Lima, before he moved to the state capital Belo Horizonte where he won with Atlético Mineiro between 1978 and 1989 eight times the State Championship of Minas Gerais.

After a three-year spell from 1989 until 1992 in Portugal with Sporting CP of Lisbon he returned to Brazil and won with Cruzeiro EC 1993 Cup of Brazil and in 1994 once more the Campeonato Mineiro.

For the Brazil national football team he played from August 1980 to June 1983 in 32 international matches, scoring two goals. He also played in all of the five matches of Brazil in the 1982 World Cup in Spain, including the memorable match in which Italy prevailed in the match to progress into the semifinal. Luizinho was selected for the All Star Team of the tournament as best player in his position.[1]
