Edon Amaral Neto (born 21 February 1967), commonly known as Edinho, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a striker.


Football career

Born in Arapiraca, Alagoas, Edinho played for modest clubs in his homeland. In 1990, he moved to Portugal where he spent four seasons, competing in both the second and third divisions with S.C. Olhanense and Portimonense SC.

From 1994 to January 1997 Edinho played in the top level, scoring 29 goals combined for G.D. Chaves and Vitória de Guimarães. On 6 February he signed with English Football League First Division side Bradford City, netting ten times in 41 games in his first full season with the Bantams; during his stint at the Valley Parade, a fans' website called Boy from Brazil was created in his honour.

On 23 March 1999 Edinho moved to Dunfermline Athletic on loan, scoring once against Hearts during his short spell. After leaving Bradford, he returned to Portugal and continued to play in the country until his retirement one decade later (at the age of 42), only two of his ten seasons being spent in division two, with C.F. União de Lamas and Olhanense – in 2007–08, he even helped historic Algarve team S.C. Farense promote from the regional championships; in the two major levels combined, he amassed totals of 189 matches and 58 goals.

Personal life

Edinho' son, Edinho Júnior, is also a footballer and a forward.
