Andrea Daniele Lombardo (born May 23, 1987) is a Italian-Canadian soccer player.[2]

Club career[edit]

Lombardo began his professional career with Atalanta in 2004. In 2005 and 2006, he was loaned to Perugia and to Rieti.[3]

He joined Toronto FC in their inaugural season of Major League Soccer in 2007 and played two seasons with the club before being released.

Lombardo went on to play 4 games for the York University soccer men's team. However, he was found to be violation of Ontario University Athletics rules because he did not maintain amateur status, having played professionally within the past year. All 4 games were overturned and despite rumours he had left the team, he re-joined the Lions for the 2009/2010 CIS season.[4]

In January 2009 it was reported that he signed a one-year contract in Australia for Whittlesea Zebras FC but this turned out to be a different Andrea Lombardo.[2]

On 28 April 2010 he signed a one-year contract for Canadian Soccer League club SC Toronto/Portugal FC which was later extended for the 2012 season. After this, he announced his retirement.[2] He has since come out of retirement to play for Vaughan Azzurri in the newly formed League1 Ontario, making his debut against TFC Academy.

International career[edit]

Lombardo has played for the Canadian under-20 national side. He was part of the squad in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship and the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
