Club career

Born in Benguela, Edson started his professional career in Portugal at the age of 19, going on to play lower league football with G.D. Mealhada and Anadia FC. In 2005, his third division performances with Oliveira do Bairro S.C. caught the attention of top level club F.C. Paços de Ferreira.

Edson made his league debut against C.D. Nacional on 21 August 2005, in a 0–1 loss in Madeira. In his second season, as Paços reached the UEFA Cup for the first time ever, he scored four goals in 25 games, but was never an undisputed starter in his four-year stay.

In the 2009 summer, Edson signed with Cyprus' Ethnikos Achna FC. However, this spell would be quite unsuccessful, and he returned to his country in the following transfer window, joining C.R.D. Libolo.

International career

An Angolan international since 2005, Edson was called up to the following year's Africa Cup of Nations and the FIFA World Cup. In the latter he played 20 minutes against Portugal, in a 0–1 defeat.

Edson also participated in the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, appearing in the quarter-final match against Egypt, a 1–2 loss.
