Éder Aleixo de Assis, was also known as Éder or Éder Assis (born May 25, 1957 in Vespasianomarker, Brazilmarker), is a former Brazilianmarker footballer. He played as a left winger and striker, most notably with Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense, Clube Atlético Mineiromarker in the Campeonato Brasileiro and with the Brazilian national team. He was also amazing at Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras in 1986. A couple of years later transferred to Malatyaspor with Carlos and Serginho in 1988-89 season but played only one match for him and returned to Brazil.

National team

He had 52 caps (5 non official), between May 1979 and April 1986, with the Brazilian national team.

Eder came to international prominence during the World Cup in 1982. In Brazil's first match of the tournament he scored a wonderful, winning goal against the Soviet Union, flicking the ball up and volleying it with blistering power into the net from fully 25 yards. He followed that up with another delightful goal in the 4-1 win over Scotland, when he feigned to shoot powerfully but then just delicately lofted the ball over Scotland's frozen goalie Alan Rough and into the far corner, from the edge of the area. He smashed a beautiful free-kick against the crossbar vs Argentina in the 2nd round group game from 30 yards out and this shot resulted in the first goal scored by Zico.He wasn't the quickest winger in the world but he was athletically built and had dazzling close control, as well as a shot that earned him the nickname "The Cannon" from his devoted fans.

He didn't make the Brazilian squad for the 1986 World Cup, after losing form and fitness during the preceding season, and also because he apparently pushed a ball boy during a warm-up game for Brazil. He was sent off in his final international match, against Peru, in April 1986. Off the field he was occasionally a controversial figure; rumours abounded that he preferred partying to training and he often fell out with coaches or fellow players.
