Wilson Bruno Naval da Costa Eduardo (born 8 July 1990 in Pedras Rubras, Maia, Porto) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Croatian club GNK Dinamo Zagreb on loan from Sporting Clube de Portugal as a forward.

Football career[edit]

After starting his football grooming with local giants F.C. Porto, Eduardo finished it at Sporting Clube de Portugal, joining the Lisbon club's youth system at the age of 14. In 2009–10 he made his senior debuts, splitting the season between Real Sport Clube (third division) and Portimonense SC (second), and being a relatively important part as the Algarve side returned to the top flight after a 20-year absence.

In the 2010–11 campaign, still on loan, Eduardo joined S.C. Beira-Mar, also freshly promoted to division one. On 15 August 2010 he made his competition debut, coming from the bench in a 0–0 home draw against U.D. Leiria; two weeks later, as the Aveiro team defeated Académica de Coimbra 2–1 (also at home), he scored his first goal in the first division.

Eduardo was again loaned by Sporting for 2012–13, to Académica.[1] On 8 November 2012 he netted twice – one of his goals coming through a second-half penalty – in a 2–0 home win against Atlético Madrid for the season's UEFA Europa League group stage.[2]
