Antoni "Toni" Lima Solá (born 22 September 1970 in Gavà, Barcelona, Catalonia) is an Andorran retired footballer who played as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

After a brief spell with Real Madrid Castilla, Lima moved to RCD Español, for which he played in two La Liga games. In 1992, he stayed in his native Catalonia and spent three seasons with Palamós CF in the second division, being relegated in the last.

After another season in level two, with CP Almería, Lima played the remainder of his Spanish career in the third level or lower. He also had two abroad experiences: in 1998, he played with C.F. União, appearing rarely as the Portuguese division two was also relegated. Three years later, also with no impact whatsoever, he represented Ionikos F.C. in the Greek top flight.

In 2008, after retiring at Societat Esportiva Eivissa-Ibiza at the age of 38, Lima became the club's director of football.

International career[edit]

Lima gained 64 caps for Andorra, over a 12-year period. On 10 June 2009, in his last international, a 0–6 loss against England for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at Wembley Stadium, he wore the captain's armband.

Personal[edit]

Lima's younger brother, Ildefons, is also a footballer and a defender. He too spent most of his career in the lower leagues of Spain, and the pair shared teams at Ionikos.
