Nádson Rodrigues de Souza (born 30 January 1982), usually known as Nádson, is a Brazilian footballer who played as a striker.

From 2003 to 2008, he played for the K-League's Suwon Samsung Bluewings, and during the K-League, he played under the name Nadson.



He debuted to Brazil on July 12, 2003 at the 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup against Mexico in Mexico City. He contribution to the team's runner-up finish in the final 4 of the 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which was held in Miami on July 23, 2003.


Before he moved to Suwon in South Korea, he played for Brazilian side Esporte Clube Vitória, and was a squad member of the Brazilian 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup side.

Nádson is known by fans of the K-League as "Nadgol", a portmanteau of the words 'Nádson' and 'Goal'. He was the first ever foreign MVP, during the 2004 K-League season.

After suffering serious injury problems during the 2006 season, Nádson went on loan to Corinthians, as a short-term replacement for West Ham United-bound Carlos Tevez, following the 2006 World Cup.

On 24 July 2008, Nádson transferred to Japanese football club Vegalta Sendai, he left the club after 6 months on 30 December 2008 and turned back to his youth club Vitória[1].

In January 2010, Nádson transferred to Sport.


Although he is small, he is nicknamed ' One Shot One Kill ' for his sensorial positioning and goal determination. Spotty and instantaneous running for space, while avoiding defense, is another advantage of Nadson.

Things Else

In December 2004, he organized 'Nadson and Friends' with Nonato and others at the friendly match 'for Warm Christma's held in Salvador, Brazil.
