Eddy Francis[1][2][3][4] or Aidi Fulangxisi (Chinese: 艾迪·弗朗西斯; pinyin: Àidí Fúlǎngxīsī, born Shanghai, 17 December 1990), or simply Aidi, is a Chinese football defender, who plays for Boavista in the Primeira Liga.

Club career[edit]

Aidi's mother is Chinese and his father is Tanzanian. He joined Genbao Football Academy when he was ten years old. In the end of 2005, he joined Shanghai East Asia with whole Genbao Football Academy team and started his career. But after his first season, he was downsized and moved to Shanghai Shenhua. In 2008, he moved to China League Two club Suzhou Trips after unhappiness with Shanghai Shenhua, but had no appearance because of problems regarding his registration. In 2009 Suzhou Trips quit China League Two, Aidi signed on loan to Ningbo Huaao for a year.[5] After his loan finished, he moved to China League One club Shanghai East Asia immediately, returned to the start of his football career.[6]

On 20 January 2012, Shanghai East Asia swapped Aidi with Luis Cabezas of Chinese Super League side Dalian Aerbin.[7] He was loaned back to Shanghai East Asia for one year in February 2012.[8] However, he failed to establish himself within the team and made just 3 appearances (all came on as substitute) in the 2012 league season. On 8 March 2014, Aidi made his debut for Dalian Aerbin in the 2014 Chinese Super League against Hangzhou Greentown,coming on as a substitute for Zhu Xiaogang in the 77th minute.[9]

On 29 January 2017, Portuguese club Boavista signed Aidi on a one-and-a-half year contract. This transfer is said to come through a partnership with the Chinese Football Association.[10]

International career[edit]

Aidi played 27 minutes for the China national under-14 football team in the 2004 AFC U-14 Championship; he is the first mixed-race player for the China national football team.[11]
