Eddie Moussa (20 March 1984 – 1 July 2010) was an Assyrian Swedish football player. He carried both Swedish citizenship and Lebanese citizenship and was of Assyrian descent.[1]

Career[edit]

He played in Sweden for Assyriska Föreningen during his career starting 2001 until his death,[2] with one year as loan to Valsta Syrianska IK for the season 2006–2007.[3] He played as an attacking midfielder or forward.[4]

As his father was Assyrian from Lebanon while his mother from Syria, he had recently acquired Lebanese citizenship to possibly play in the Lebanese National Football Team.[5]

Death[edit]

At 2:22 am on 1 July 2010, Eddie Moussa, his brother Yaacoub and another person were shot in Café Oasen in Södertälje, Sweden[6] in an apparently targeted shooting according to Swedish police.[7] According to witnesses, three men came into the premises and began shooting. They then escaped on their scooters. Eddie and his brother Yaacoub Moussa died while their friend was seriously injured.[8] The murder of Eddie and Yaacoub Moussa is alleged to have been a revenge against their brother, Dany Moussa, an underworld gang leader and head of the Bandidos and X-Team in Södertälje.
