You are probably referring to Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama, named after the Portuguese explorer and one of the most popular Brazilian clubs, of Rio de Janeiro. There are other clubs named after him too, also in Brazil, and in other countries like Canada, Nigeria, India and Portugal, though less known and some of them were directly inspired and named after the successful Brazilian club.
