Eduardo scored his first goal for Guingamp, a penalty against Strasbourg.[2] He gained many admirers due to his versatile play exhibited with Grasshoppers playing opposite Richard Nuñez.

On 9 May 2009, Eduardo wrote his name into French football history by scoring both his team's goals in a 2–1 triumph in the Coupe de France final against Stade Rennais FC.[3]
