Panutche Camara

Early career

After playing youth football for Loures and Vitória de Guimarães, Camará joined the under-23 setup at Barnsley before signing for Dulwich Hamlet in 2017. He made 15 appearances for Hamlet, scoring four goals.

Crawley Town

Camará signed a two-year professional contract with Crawley Town in June 2017. He scored his first goal for Crawley on his debut in a 5–1 EFL Cup defeat at Birmingham City on 8 August 2017. In 2017–18, he made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals. In 2018–19, he appeared regularly for the Reds, making 50 appearances in all competitions, also scoring three goals. In May 2019, Crawley extended his contract to the end of the 2019–20 season. He was offered a new contract by Crawley at the end of the 2019–20 season, though Camará rejected the offer and chose to leave the club.

Plymouth Argyle

On 7 August 2020, Camará signed for Plymouth Argyle on a free transfer following his release from Crawley. He scored his first goal for Plymouth in an EFL Cup tie against Leyton Orient on 15 September 2020. Plymouth exercised their option to extend Camará’s contract at the end of the 2021–22 season. Despite this, Camará was made available for transfer with him showing no intent of signing a new improved contract with the club.

Ipswich Town

Camará signed for Ipswich Town on 1 September 2022 on a two-year deal for a fee reported to be around £500,000. Having initially been sidelined with a groin injury early in the season, Camará made his Ipswich debut as a half-time substitute in a 0–1 EFL Trophy defeat away against Cambridge United on 18 October 2022. He scored his first goal for the club in his next appearance, coming off the bench to score in a 3–0 away win against Bracknell Town in an FA Cup first-round tie on 7 November. He made his league debut for Ipswich five days later, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 1–1 home draw against Cheltenham Town at Portman Road. In December, Camará underwent surgery on the groin injury he had been suffering from during the season, ruling him out of action for a number of months. He returned from injury in March, featuring for Ipswich’s under-21 team during the remaining months of the season. In total, he made 4 appearances during an injury that hindered his first season at Ipswich scoring once. Ipswich achieved promotion to the EFL Championship during his first season at the club following a second-place finish in EFL League One.

On 18 July 2023, Camará joined Charlton Athletic on a season-long loan for the 2023–24 campaign.

International career

In June 2021, Camará received his first international call-up from Guinea-Bissau for a friendly against Cape Verde, but the match was cancelled after a fault with the Cape Verde plane meant they could not get to the game. He was named in Guinea-Bissau’s 24-man squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. He debuted with them in a 0–0 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tie with Sudan on 11 January 2022.

He scored his first international goal in a friendly match against Equatorial Guinea on 23 March 2022.
