Eduardo Soares Ferreira (born October 8, 1983) is a Brazil-born naturalized Equatoguinean footballer who plays for Indian club NEROCA as a defender.

Club career[edit]

After a stint with South African club Mamelodi Sundowns, Ferreira signed for Colombian second tier club America Cali in January 2012.[1] He injured himself in a match against Atlético Bucaramanga in May.[2] In July 2013, he returned to the South African top tier with newly promoted club Black Aces after a stint with Thai club Ratchaburi.[3]

In 2015, Ferreira signed for Iranian club Esteghlal Khuzestan from Brazilian club Macaé. In the only season he spent with the club, he won the Iran Professional League title with it. At the end of the season, he was told by the club that he was surplus to its requirements and he was free to leave the club in the summer.[4] Subsequently, he moved to the Indian Super League and signed for Pune City for the 2016 season.[5] In November, he scored his first goal for the club in a match against Atlético Kolkata.[6]

On 6 December 2016, after the end of the Super League, Ferreira joined I-League club Mohun Bagan.[7] In the following October, he switched to city rivals East Bengal as a replacement for the injured Carlyle Mitchell.[8] He scored his first goal on 28 November, in a 2–2 draw against Aizawl FC.[9]

International career[edit]

Ferreira was naturalized in 2013 and made his international debut for Equatorial Guinea on 16 November 2013 against Spain as an 81st-minute substitute for Viera Ellong.[10][11]
