Edson Luis da Silva, Edson (born on March 15, 1977) is a Brazilian footballer (defender / midfielder) of Santa Cruz Futebol Clube. He can play anywhere in defence and can also play in midfield. He is a dead ball specialist and he also pacey and possesses decent dribbling skills. He quickly made a name for himself in the Orange Ekstraklasa, scoring some impressive goals from free-kicks. However he was unable to maintain his form and he was eventually dropped in favor of Grzegorz Bronowicki. However, in the 2007/2008 season Bronowicki's was sold to Crvena Zvezda Belgrad and new manager of Legia Warszawa, Jan Urban moved Edson to the midfield and he reclaimed his place in first eleven. He then lost his place again to 18 year old Maciej Rybus.

On August 1, 2009 he moved to Polish Ekstraklasa side Korona Kielce. On August 9 he made his debut for his new club in a match against Lech Poznań.
