Éder Aleixo de Assis, was also known as Éder, Éder Aleixo or Éder Assis (Brazilian Portuguese: ['?d??]; born 25 May 1957 in Vespasiano, Brazil), is a Brazilian former footballer. He played as a left winger, and as a forward, most notably with Atlético Mineiro in the Campeonato Brasileiro and with the Brazilian national team. He also played for Palmeiras and Grêmio . A couple of years later transferred to Malatyaspor with Carlos and Serginho in 1988–89 season but played only one match for them and returned to Brazil. He had 52 caps with the Brazilian national team between May 1979 and April 1986. Éder came to international prominence during the 1982 FIFA World Cup, playing in midfield alongside Zico, Sócrates and Falcão, considered one of the greatest Brazilian national teams ever. 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 25 yards. He followed that up with another outstanding goal in the 4–1 win over Scotland, when he feigned to shoot powerfully but then lofted the ball over Scotland's frozen goalie Alan Rough and into the far corner, from the edge of the area. He smashed a bending 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. Éder 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.
