Left-handed, Adson has the characteristic of always dribbling inwards, losing the chance to seek the runner. He is also fast and has a short dribble. Unlike Mosquito, he gives the team buoyancy and fills the midfield to rotate the ball, also allowing for more overtaking by Fagner.
There are 47 games in the year, with five goals and two assists. He started in 26.
