Football career[edit]

Early years / Estoril[edit]

Born in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Carlos Eduardo played youth football for three clubs. He started his senior career with Desportivo Brasil, who loaned him several times for the duration of his contract; in the Série A he represented Fluminense Football Club and Grêmio Barueri Futebol, but only appeared in 24 games the two sides combined.

Carlos Eduardo moved to Portugal in January 2011, being loaned to G.D. Estoril Praia in the second division. He contributed with 23 matches and one goal in his first full season, to help his team win the league and return to the Primeira Liga after a seven-year absence.

Carlos Eduardo made his debut in the main category of Portuguese football on 17 August 2012, coming on as a 60th minute substitute in a 1–2 away loss against S.C. Olhanense. He totalled nearly 1,600 minutes of action – notably scoring twice in a 4–0 home win over C.D. Nacional – during the campaign as the Lisbon club overachieved for a final fifth position and qualified to the UEFA Europa League.


In the 2013 summer Carlos Eduardo signed with another Portuguese side, FC Porto, alternating between the main squad and the reserves in his first year. For 2014–15, he was loaned to France's OGC Nice.

On 26 October 2014 Carlos Eduardo scored five times in Nice's 7–2 away routing of En Avant de Guingamp, including a first-half hat-trick.[1][2]


In the 2015 summer, Carlos Eduardo joined Al-Hilal FC.[3][4] In his very first appearance with the Saudi club, on 12 August 2015, he netted the only goal in a win against Al-Nassr FC for the Saudi Super Cup at Loftus Road.[5] Late in the month, in two games separated by four days, he helped defeat Lekhwiya SC (4–1 home victory, for the AFC Champions League) and Al-Fateh SC (2–1, away) by scoring three times combined.[6][7]
