Edson is an all-action central midfielder standing at 188cm tall and he can improve. He’s an athletic and dynamic player, a No.8 in a 4-1-4-1 system. Right-footed, he is a midfielder with strong energy levels who excels in the two phases – dedicated to winning back possession of the ball from the opposition and starting attacks for his own team. He has a tireless work-ethic, but he has room for improvement on his decision making and game management to go to the next level. Within six months he has moved from a small local team to Sporting and he can undoubtedly still grow. He has a profile suitable for all major leagues.
