Eneas de Camargo ( São Paulo , 18 of March of 1954 - São Paulo, from December 27 of 1988 ) was a footballer Brazilian who played as a striker, having played many years in Portuguesa (1971-1980), club that he was the second highest scorer, with 179 goals, and the highest scorer in Brazilian Championships , with 46 goals. Enéas started in the Portuguese children's school, but gave up and stayed a year away, exercising the profession of office-boy. He returned at the insistence of the youth coach Nena and became a professional there in 1972, launched by coach Cilinho .His start was irregular, and he even entered a possible list of layoffs for the club, but, fast and dribbling, became one of the best players of the team during the Campeonato Paulista 1973 , when the coach Oto Glória decided to put him in the position of Basílio , who was moved to the midfield. "When I saw Enéas training at Portuguesa, I was almost sure I was a star," explained Glória. "With the withdrawal of Basílio" I won a great midfielder and a sensational striker." After the 2-0 victory over Corinthians , when he scored a goal and made the opponent's defense miserable, his name came to be considered for the Brazilian team . He was the São Paulo champion that year, in the final in which referee Armando Marques missed the penalty count, which ended up causing the title to be divided between Lusa andSantos . He left Canindé in 1980, after 179 goals in 376 games., to move to Italy , where he went to defend Bologna . He returned to Brazil with problems in his right knee, but, without knowing it, Palmeiras hired him for 50 million cruzeiros as great hope for the season. In the two years he spent there, he played only 93 games, scoring 28 goals, but lost space after fighting with coach Carlos Alberto Silva. "A coach I don't even want to say his name touched me and I ended up losing my motivation," he explained in 1984. With a view to a possible appreciation of his pass, he was loaned free of charge to the XV de Piracicaba in 1984, with the salaries paid by Palmeiras, although it was officially announced that he received a fraction of the salaries, plus accommodation at the best hotel in Piracicaba . Later, he also worked for Juventude , Atlético Goianiense , Desportiva Ferroviária and Operário de Ponta Grossa , before ending his career at Central Brasileira de Cotia , in the third division of São Paulo, where he was also a manager. [Brazilian team Enéas was part of the squad that won the Pre-Olympic Games for Munich-1972 , but was never called up for the Olympics. His first call-up for the national team would take place on February 18, 1974. He made his debut in the eighteen minutes of the second half against Mexico , on March 31, when he replaced Mirandinha . He did not stand out and had no other chances of getting a place in the group that went to the 1974 World Cup . He would be called up again in 1976, for the game against Paraguay for the Atlantic Cup . He started and scored Brazil's goal, in the 31st minute of the first half, but his performance did not please, being replaced by Palhinha nineteen minutes of the second half. He was still called up for the next game, against Uruguay , in which he started as a starter, but was replaced early in the second half by Roberto Dinamite.
