A prolific soccer player in the 2000s, Antonio has now turned to a coaching career, first with FC Boisbriand, then as a coach for the Ribeiro-Moojen Combine, which he co-founded with former teammate Frederico Moojen.
Born in Portugal, Antonio grew up in Montreal. Early in high school, he made his mark for his talent with a soccer ball. In 2000, his professional career took off, as he joined the Montreal Impact (now CF Montréal) for the next eight years before making a leap into the MLS as a midfielder for the San Jose Earthquakes in 2009.
With his three selections in Canada's national team, Antonio has become well known in the world of Canadian soccer and now hopes to pass on his passion and expertise to the young stars of tomorrow.
Born and raised in Brazil, Frederico Moojen (a.k.a. Freddy for the Combine's players) has an impressive track record. He played in the NCAA (Lincoln Memorial and Clemson University) for 3 years prior to the start of his pro soccer career with the Montreal Impact (now CF Montréal) in 2007. Over 14 years, Freddy then played for professional clubs in Canada, the US, Europe, Brazil and Asia. He has also been a member of Team Canada Futsal since 2012, and holds a Provincial B Coaching License in Canada.
With the flame of the soccer still shining bright, Freddy now passes the torch to the new generation of promising young Combine's players.
Sophie has been the partner of the Ribeiro-Moojen duo for several years. She is the Combine's Jack-of-all-trades and works off the pitch to make sure events run smoothly.
