Koldo Alvarez


Date of birth: 4 September 1970
Nationality: Andorran
Playing career: Aurrerá Vitória, Atlético Madrid, Toledo (loan), Salamanca, FC Andorra (twice), Balaguer
Coaching career: Andorra

• A reserve goalkeeper at Atlético, Koldo came through the club's youth ranks and lifted the Copa del Rey with the Spanish side in 1990/91.

• Leaving the capital in search of first-team football, Koldo played for Toledo before winning promotion to the Spanish second division with Salamanca in 1993/94.

• Signed for FC Andorra in the summer of 1994, dividing his time between playing for the club's first team and acting as a youth coach with the national Under-17, U19 and U21 sides.

• Capped 78 times by Andorra before his retirement following a 6-0 loss to England at Wembley in June 2009 having been named his country's best player of the last 50 years by the Andorran Football Federation (FAF) six years earlier.

• Took over as coach of the national team in February 2010, his side finishing bottom of their qualifying groups for UEFA EURO 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. That was again the case in the UEFA EURO 2016 preliminaries, although Andorra did score four goals – setting a new best mark for the competition – and overcame Hungary in June 2017 in 2018 World Cup qualifying, their first competitive win since 2004.
