According to a note from the Angolan Football Federation (FAF), to which VerAngola had access, the former footballer was an "emblematic figure" of national football, as well as "one of the first professional players that Angola had, when at the end of the decade 60 was a starter for Sport Lisboa e Benfica".

Born on October 6, 1945, in the province of Zaire, Domingos Inguila was a four-time champion for Atlético Sport Aviação 'ASA', from 1964 to 1967. However, at first he followed in his father's footsteps, playing for the club ASES Futebol Clube de Ambrizete.

During his career he also spent time in Portugal, where he played for Portuguese club Benfica between 1967 and 1971 and also for Beira-Mar, from 1971 to 1976.

"In the 1967/68 season, he was signed by Sport Lisboa e Benfica and immediately on his debut he gained a starting position as a central midfielder, and in 1971/72 he went to Aveiro, at the invitation of the Beira-Mar club, where he played until 1976, at the dawn of Angola's independence, which attracted him to return to his homeland, now independent from Portugal", reads the Federation's note.

According to the FAF, he was part of "Angola's first national football teams, in 1977 and 1978, having partnered with other historical figures of his time, such as Arménio, Carlos Alves, Carnaval, Chico Lopes, Dedé, Geovetti, Joaquim Dinis, Laurindo, Mateus César, Napoleon, Salviano, Santo António, Silva, Sílvio Vinhas".

At the age of 33 he reformed his 'boots', and in 1981 he embarked on the path of coach.
