Player Info

Eder was born on December 22, 1987 in Guinea-Bissau. His family moved to Portugal when he was three. There, at the city of Coimbra, the boy joined the local football academy. In 2007 Eder signed his first pro contract with the Tourizense football club from Portugal's third division. He made 42 appearances and scored 11 goals.

In 2008 the player joined Academica. During his four-year spell at the club, the striker made his debut in the top-flight division, and won the Cup of Portugal.

In 2012 Eder signed a four-year deal with Braga and rose to a top scorer position in his very first year, notching 13 goals. He immediately got a call-up to the national team. Together with Braga, Eder won the Taca de Liga.

Eder started his 2015/16 season at Swansea but moved to Lille in mid-season. During two years in France the striker made 51 appearances and scored 13 goals.

Eder's finest hour came with the 2016 Euro Finals where he scored a winner against France in extra time, bringing his team their first-ever European Champions title.

Eder has won a total of 33 caps and scored four goals.
