About Pauleta Pedro Miguel Carreiro Resendes, OIH (born 28 April 1973 in Ponta Delgada, Azores), commonly known as Pauleta (Portuguese pronunciation: auˈletɐ), is a former Portuguese professional footballer, who played as a striker. Pauleta is the leading scorer for the Portuguese national team, having scored 47 goals in 88 matches. He played for his country in UEFA Euro 2000, the 2002 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 2004, and the 2006 FIFA World Cup before retiring from international football. When selected for the latter competition, he was the only player to have never played in the Portuguese first division. His goal celebration of spreading his arms like wings earned him the nickname The Birdman of the Açores. In November 2005, Pauleta signed to become a FIFA ambassador for the SOS Children's Villages, the first Portuguese to do so.
