Antônio Carlos Gomes
Antônio Carlos Gomes was the first New World composer whose work was accepted by Europe. The only non-European, successful as an opera composer in Italy, during the "golden age of opera", contemporary to Verdi and Puccini and the first composer of non-European lineage to be accepted into the Classic tradition of music. Younger than Verdi, yet older than Puccini, Carlos Gomes achieved his first major success in a time when the Italian audiences were eager for a new name to celebrate and Puccini had not yet started his career. After the successful premiere of Il Guarany, Gomes was considered the most promising new composer. Verdi said his work was an expression of "true musical genius". Liszt said that “it displays dense technical maturity, full of harmonic and orchestral maturity.” He was born in Campinas, Empire of Brazil, son of Maestro Manuel José Gomes and Fabiana Maria Jaguari Cardoso. His childhood's musical tendencies were soon stimulated by his father and by his older brother, José Pedro de Sant'Ana Gomes a conductor.
José Pedro was the most dedicated adviser in his brother's artistic career. He convinced Antônio to visit the Court where he became a protégé of Emperor Dom Pedro II, being notoriously interested in the careers of Brazilian artists and intellectuals, made it possible for Antônio Carlos to study at the Musical Conservatory of Rio de Janeiro. After having graduated with honors, Carlos produced his first opera, A noite do castelo, a big success. Two years he repeated it with his second opera, Joana de Flandres, considered superior to the first; these two pieces convinced the Emperor to offer him a Royal scholarship to study in Italy in 1864. He studied in Milan at the local conservatory with Lauro Rossi and Alberto Mazzucato and completed in three years a course, completed in four years, obtaining the title of Maestro Composer. Interested in composing an opera which dealt with a Brazilian subject, Carlos Gomes chose as the theme of his next work the romance novel O Guarani, by Brazilian writer José de Alencar.
The opera was given an Indian subject and setting and it premiered in May 1870 at the La Scala Theater in Milan as Il Guarany. The success was enormous; the most strict musical critics compared the Brazilian musician to the great European maestros, such as Rossini and Verdi. The King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II, decorated the creator of the opera, presented in all major European capitals. Before that year was over, Gomes returned to Brazil, where he organized the premiere of Il Guarany in Rio de Janeiro; the piece achieved. Returning to Italy, Carlos Gomes married Adelina Peri, an Italian pianist he had met while studying in Milan, he wrote the hymn Il saluto del Brasile for the centenary of American independence, performed in Philadelphia, on July 19, 1876. In 1883 the maestro traveled to Brazil, receiving homages in every city he visited; when he returned to Italy, he dedicated himself to the composition of an opera themed against slavery, inspired by the liberation struggle of black slaves in Brazil, which got the title of Lo schiavo.
The composition, suggested by a great friend of Antônio's, a black engineer named André Rebouças, only debuted several years in 1889. When the Brazilian republic was proclaimed in 1889, Carlos Gomes, who at this time was in Campinas, sailed once more to Italy. Faithful to the monarchy and Dom Pedro II, Gomes refused the opportunity given to him by president Deodoro da Fonseca to compose the new Brazilian National Anthem. In the following years, he composed the opera Condor and the cantata Colombo, for the Columbus Festival, in celebration of the fourth centenary of the discovery of America. Invited by the governor of the Brazilian province of Pará to direct the Musical Conservatory, the maestro traveled to the capital Belém, willing to take the position. However, shortly after arriving, Carlos Gomes, by an elderly man in poor health, died on September 16, 1896. Besides his eight operas, he composed songs and piano pieces. Many honors were given to conductor Carlos Gomes throughout Brazil and abroad where he ruled and made fame.

Heurelho da Silva Gomes, better known as Heurelho Gomes, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Watford. He made a name for himself at Dutch club PSV, spent six years at Tottenham Hotspur. Gomes began as a forward, only becoming a goalkeeper at age 19. Gomes started his career in his native country Brazil at Cruzeiro, where he played 59 games between 2001 and 2004. Here, he was scouted by Piet de Visser and in July 2004, he was sold to PSV. Gomes made his debut for the Eindhoven club against Serbian side Red Star Belgrade on 11 August 2004. At first, there were critics, saying that Brazilians "should be on the field, not in the goal". In other words, there were doubts; those doubts were erased. Though he conceded two goals in his debut against RBC, which PSV won 5–2, he proved himself to be a reliable goalkeeper, he played a major part in PSV's four latest consecutive titles in the Eredivisie and in the great European achievements. In his first season, PSV reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, where in the 14 attempts before, PSV wasn't able to reach the second round.
In the following seasons, PSV progressed each time from the group stage. In the Eredivisie, Gomes was known for his outstanding reflexes, which saved points for PSV more than once, his trademark throwing ability is well known. Gomes is able to throw the ball all the way deep into the opponents half. Before the start of the match and second half, Gomes jumps up above the goal with his shoulders, pumping up the PSV supporters. Gomes was a crowd favorite at PSV, he can speak Portuguese and Spanish and while in the Netherlands, he picked up a fair amount of Dutch, although it has to be said he is not fluent in the language. Though the rivalry between PSV, Feyenoord and Ajax is intense, fans from rival clubs showed sympathy for the Brazilian. Notable was an incident in Rotterdam in the match against Feyenoord, when Gomes injured himself whilst celebrating a goal, scored by his teammate Phillip Cocu. However, he managed to continue and managed to pull off a wonder save, keeping his side in the game, which they went on to draw.
Following the appointment of manager Juande Ramos, Gomes signed for Tottenham Hotspur on 27 June 2008 for a fee was believed to be around £7.8 million. Gomes played his first game in Tottenham colours in a pre-season friendly match on 19 July 2008 against Spanish Segunda División B side Dénia, which Tottenham won 4–2. Gomes obtained a work permit to play in the United Kingdom, despite playing less than the 75% required number of games for Brazil in the last two years. Gomes made his home debut on 10 August 2008, keeping a clean sheet with a 5–0 victory over Roma on Tottenham's last pre-season friendly, before the 2008–09 Premier League began. Tottenham lost their two opening games 2–1 to Middlesbrough and Sunderland but his presence in goal helped Spurs earn their first point of the season with a draw against rival club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, his reputation took a hit a week however, when he conceded a weak shot from Ashley Young in Spurs' 2–1 home defeat against Aston Villa. These blunders continued as he conceded an own goal in a London derby against Fulham on 15 November 2008, which kept his club mired deep in the relegation zone and caused Spurs goalkeeping coach Hans Leitert to be sacked on 19 November 2008, with the appointment of former Spurs goalkeeper Tony Parks made shortly after.
Gomes went on to put in a strong performance against West Ham United, saving two shots deep into the match in which Tottenham won 2–0, before making two important saves to deny Park Ji-sung and Ryan Giggs in a 0–0 draw with Manchester United. Gomes was injured in Spurs' 5–1 win over Hull City in the second game of the 2009–10 Premier League season and had to be replaced by second-choice goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini. After an MRI scan, it was revealed that Gomes suffered damage to his groin which would keep him out for up to a month, he made his return to first team action in the 5–1 victory over Preston North End in the League Cup on 23 September 2009, made his Premier League comeback in the 2–1 win at Portsmouth on 17 October. During this match, the Brazilian made a handful of brilliant saves, one of, compared by former Spurs goalkeeper Pat Jennings to a famous save made by Gordon Banks against Brazil in the 1970 FIFA World Cup. On 3 April 2010, he made two penalty saves out of three against in a 3–1 defeat away at Sunderland on 14 April, Gomes' fine form aided Spurs in picking up their first Premier League victory over Arsenal in 21 meetings.
The following week, on 17 April, Gomes again made several crucial saves as Tottenham beat Chelsea 2–1 as the team passed Manchester City to sit fourth in the League standings. He kept a clean sheet in a 1–0 win over Bolton Wanders and played a vital role in the 1–0 victory against Manchester City with two crucial saves which saw Tottenham get into the UEFA Champions League for the first time ever. On 20 October 2010, Gomes received a red card for fouling Jonathan Biabiany within the first ten minutes of the first half against European Champions Inter Milan at the San Siro in the Champions League. Tottenham Hotspur lost the match 4–3 after going 4–0 down inside the first 35 minutes, despite a second half hat-trick from Gareth Bale. Gomes' goalkeeping ability was called into question on 13 April 2011 in the second leg tie against Real Madrid after a long-shot from Cristiano Ronaldo slipped out of Gomes' hands over his head and into the goal to put Real Madrid 5–0 up on aggregate. Gomes took blame for another controversial goal against Chelsea on 30 April after a shot from Frank
