Club careerEdit

Born in Vila do Conde, Agra began his career with Varzim SC, joining the club's youth ranks at the age of 13. He made his senior debuts in the 2010–11 season, being a very important attacking unit – only one league game missed – as the Póvoa de Varzim team was finally relegated from the second division.

Agra signed for S.C. Olhanense in the summer of 2011,[1] penning a three-year contract with the Algarve side on 8 July.[2] He made his Primeira Liga debut on 13 August, playing 15 minutes in a 1–1 away draw against Sporting CP.[3]

In late January 2012, Agra joined Spanish club Real Betis who paid €300,000 for 60% of his rights,[4][5] but stayed with Olhanense until the end of the campaign. He appeared in just 14 competitive matches during his spell in Andalusia – scoring his only goal in a 2–4 La Liga home loss to Atlético Madrid[6]– being successively loaned to A.C. Siena,[7] S.C. Braga and Académica de Coimbra.[8]

On 28 June 2015, Agra cut ties with Betis and signed a four-year contract with C.D. Nacional.[9] On 1 July 2017, after the latter's relegation, he agreed to a three-year deal with Portuguese champions S.L. Benfica;[10] he spent his first year on loan, to C.D. Aves[11] and Granada CF (the latter in the Spanish Segunda División).[12]

For 2018–19, Agra joined Cádiz CF from Spain on a one-year loan.[13] In the following transfer window, however, he terminated his link with Benfica and moved to Legia Warsaw in the Polish Ekstraklasa on a two-and-a-half-year contract.[14]

International careerEdit

Agra earned 15 caps for Portugal at youth level, including eight for the under-21 team. His first arrived on 5 September 2011, when he played the last 12 minutes of a 1–0 friendly win over France.[15]
