Édson Boaro, best known as Édson[1] and as Édson Abobrão (born July 3, 1959 at São José do Rio Pardo, São Paulo State) is a former Brazilian football (soccer) defender.

In his career, he played for Ponte Preta (1978–1984), Corinthians (1984–1989), Palmeiras (1989–1992), Guarani (1992), Noroeste, Paysandu and Remo Pará (1993), Botafogo (1994–1995) and São José do Rio Pardo (1995–1998).

He won the Brazilian Silver Ball Award in 1984, one São Paulo State Championship in 1988 and one Pará State Championship in 1992. With the Brazil national football team he won at the Pan American Games in 1979, was capped 19 times between June 1983 and June 1986, and participated in the 1986 FIFA World Cup.

Édson played at right-back in Brazil’s opening two games in the 1986 World Cup in México, when first choice Leandro did not make the trip. He was injured early in the second game, against Algeria in Guadalajara, and was replaced by the veteran midfielder Falcão. However, Édson’s injury ultimately led to the début of Josimar, at right-back, for the next game against Northern Ireland. Édson, as luck would have it, never played for Brazil again. Since 1998, he is a coach.
