Jefferson Nascimento (born 5 July 1988) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Sporting Clube de Portugal as a left back.
Born in Campo Formoso, Bahia, Jefferson represented in his country Associação Desportiva São Caetano, Guaratinguetá Futebol, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, Grêmio Barueri Futebol, Fluminense FC, Clube Náutico Capibaribe and Santa Cruz Futebol Clube. His Série A input consisted of 11 games in representation of the third and fifth clubs, during three separate seasons; interspersed with that, he had a one-year spell in Portugal with G.D. Estoril Praia.
Jefferson returned to Estoril for the 2012–13 campaign, with the team now in the Primeira Liga. He scored his first goal as a professional on 11 November 2012 to help to a 2–0 home defeat of Moreirense FC, and also found the net against Sporting Clube de Portugal (3–1 home win) and S.L. Benfica (1–1, away) in an eventual fifth-place finish, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Europa League; most of his five successful strikes across all competitions came from long-distance shots.
On 7 June 2013, Jefferson signed a four-year contract with Sporting. He netted twice in 26 games in his debut season, helping to a runner-up position.
In April 2014, Jefferson celebrated his 50th appearance in the Portuguese top division, in a match against F.C. Paços de Ferreira.
