Everton Sousa Soares (born 22 March 1996), known simply as Everton or Everton Cebolinha (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈɛvɛɾtõ]), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Benfica and the Brazil national team.
Everton was born in Maracanaú, Ceará, and joined Grêmio's youth setup in 2012, from Fortaleza. Initially on loan, he signed a permanent contract in October 2013, whilst also being linked to Manchester City in the process.
Promoted to the main squad by Enderson Moreira ahead of the 2014 season, Everton made his first team debut on 19 January of that year, coming on as a second-half substitute for Yuri Mamute in a 1–0 Campeonato Gaúcho away loss against São José-PA. His first goal came on four days later, as he scored the first in a 2–1 home win against Lajeadense.
Everton made his Série A debut on 20 April 2014, replacing Pará in a 1–0 away loss against Athletico Paranaense. Rarely used during the tournament, he started to feature more regularly during the 2015 campaign, scoring his first goal in the top tier on 6 September in a 2–1 home success over Goiás.
On 15 August 2016, Everton renewed his contract with Grêmio until 2020. On 23 November, in the first leg of the 2016 Copa do Brasil Finals, he came on as a late substitute for Douglas and scored the last goal in a 3–1 away win against Atlético Mineiro; he was a starter in the second leg, a 1–1 home draw which granted the title to Tricolor.
On 7 August 2020, Everton concluded a transfer to Benfica.
In May 2019, he was included in Brazil's 23-man squad for the 2019 Copa América on home soil. He scored his first ever international goal in Brazil's opening game of the tournament, netting the final goal in a 3–0 win against Bolivia on 15 June. Seven days later, Everton scored his second international goal against Peru, in Brazil's final group stage match, firing in a shot at the near post from outside the box; the match ended in a 5–0 victory to Brazil, which enabled the hosts to advance to the quarter-finals of the tournament.
In the 2019 Copa América Final on 7 July, at the Maracanã Stadium, Everton scored the opening goal in an eventual 3–1 win over Peru, and was named Man of the Match; he also finished the tournament as the top scorer with 3 goals, alongside Peru's Paolo Guerrero, but won the Golden Boot Award due to having played fewer minutes than the Peruvian throughout the tournament.
