Edgar Bruno da Silva (born 3 January 1987), known simply as Edgar, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Qatari club Lekhwiya SC.

Football career[edit]

Born in São Carlos, São Paulo, Edgar started professionally for São Paulo FC in 2006, being loaned by Série C side Joinville Esporte Clube. In January 2007 he moved to Portugal with S.C. Beira-Mar, scoring four league goals which proved insufficient in avoiding relegation from the Primeira Liga; also in that year, he was part of the Brazilian under-20 team that won the South American Youth Championship.[1]

In the 2007 summer transfer window, Edgar was transferred to FC Porto but, after featuring sparingly, moved on loan to fellow league club Associação Académica de Coimbra. He joined Red Star Belgrade in Serbia in July 2008 on a season-long loan, but, in January of the following year, he was released by Porto and returned to Brazil, signing for CR Vasco da Gama.[2]

In August 2009, Edgar returned to Portugal after agreeing to join C.D. Nacional, which had just lost Nenê2008–09's league top scorer – to Cagliari Calcio. He started off well, netting four times in only three games, including twice in a 2–1 derby win against C.S. Marítimo and a hat-trick at Leixões SC (4–2).

Edgar enjoyed another productive season in 2010–11, scoring ten goals in the league with Vitória de Guimarães to help the Minho team qualify to the UEFA Europa League. He also netted five in seven appearances in the campaign's Portuguese Cup, including one in the final against Porto, albeit in a 2–6 loss – he also missed a penalty kick with the score levelled at 2–2.[3]

In July 2012, Edgar moved to UAE Pro-League side Al Shabab (Dubai) on a one-year contract.[4] On 16 August 2016, he left Al-Wasl F.C. also in the UAE Arabian Gulf League and signed a two-year deal with Turkish club Adanaspor,[5] being released the following January.[6]
