Genoa sign Eduardo and Gergely

Eduardo, who conceded only one goal in four appearances for Portugal at the FIFA World Cup, has signed for Genoa CFC along with Hungarian international striker Gergely Rudolf.

Genoa CFC have signed Portugal's FIFA World Cup goalkeeper Eduardo and Hungarian international striker Gergely Rudolf.

SC Braga announced that they have received €4.5m for the 27-year-old Eduardo while retaining 25% of his licence. A Braga youth product, Eduardo, who will take the place of the AC Milan-bound Marco Amelia, made his breakthrough with loans at SC Beira-Mar and Vitória FC, the club he helped win the 2007/08 Portuguese League Cup.

He returned to Braga the following season and has been ever-present for their previous two UEFA Europa League and Liga campaigns. Last term he helped them to a club best second place, earning a UEFA Champions League third qualifying round berth.

Making his senior Portugal debut against Finland on 11 February 2009, Eduardo then displaced Quim – who this summer joined Braga – as starter. He aided Carlos Queiroz's side to the World Cup round of 16, playing excellently in the 1-0 loss to Spain, David Villa scoring the only goal Eduardo conceded in South Africa.

Rudolf, meanwhile, arrives on undisclosed terms. The 25-year-old former AS Nancy-Lorraine forward moves to Italy on the back of a two-season spell with Debreceni VSC in his homeland which yielded two league titles and 24 goals in 52 top-flight appearances.
