Elba de Pádua Lima, best known by the nickname Tim (20 February 1915 – 7 July 1984) was a Brazilian association footballer and coach.

Tim was born in Rifaina, São Paulo. During his career, which spanned from 1931 to 1951, he played for Brazilian clubs clubs Botafogo-SP, Portuguesa Santista, Fluminense,[1] and Olaria;[2] he won five Rio de Janeiro State Tournaments (1936, 1937, 1938, 1940, 1941). He retired in Colombia with Atlético Junior of Barranquilla.[3] He was also a member of the Brazilian national team, for whom he participated at the 1938 FIFA World Cup, playing one match against Czechoslovakia, and at the South American Championship 1942, where he scored one goal.

44 years after participating in the World Cup as a player, Tim was the manager of the Peru national team at the 1982 World Cup, in what is the longest interval ever between an individual's World Cup participations, and the longest World Cup career overall.[4] Two years after the 1982 World Cup, he died in Rio de Janeiro at the age of 69. He coached Bangu.[5] In 1968 he was Primera División Argentina champion with San Lorenzo de Almagro.
