Boaz Theofilius Erwin Solossa (born 16 March 1986) is an Indonesianfootballer. His brothers, Ortizan and Nehemia, are also footballers. Boaz plays at Persipura while Ortizan plays at Persija. They met in a match at the 2005 Liga Indonesia final, where Persipura beat Persija 3–2. He is known by his high leveled dribbling technique and his crossing accuracy or short-passing with his left-foot.
Nevertheless, Boas was unable to perform for Persipura for almost 6 months due to an incident where he and his Persipura teammates assaulted a referee officiating one of Persipura matches in the 2004–2005 season. During the time he was out of action, many considered his skills to drop and his prospect wasted. This resulted in the Indonesian national team manager Peter Withe crossing his name off the team list from the national team in 2006. He also has a bad reputation due to his alcoholism, which also contributed to his decline in form over the past year although Boas stated that he is trying his best to quit and gain back his place in the Indonesian national team.
In 2011, Boas got an offer to play at Dutch club VVV-Venlo, but because of the family reasons he chose to keep playing in Persipura Jayapura.
Boas was born in the Solossa family, a well-known family in the province of West Papua. His uncle, Jaap Solossa, was the governor of Papua before he died in 2005. Boas was born in a footballing family as well, being the youngest of five children. Almost all of them were professionals, including his brother Ortizan and Nehemia. Boas obtained a Bachelor of Economics at Cenderawasih University in 2013.
Boas' international debut was against Turkmenistan in 2004 for the 2006 World Cup qualification where Indonesia won 3–1 and Boas made two assists for his team mate Ilham Jaya Kesuma. Boas is considered to be a bright prospect in Indonesian football after performing brilliantly in the 2004 Tiger Cup, where Indonesia was defeated by Singapore in a home and away match, which resulted in an aggregate score of 5–2 to Singapore. In the group phase, Boas managed to score 4 goals and along with Ilham Jayakesuma, who scored 7 goals, both led the top scorers chart.
He got injured after a tough tackle in a friendly match against Hong Kong, this make him absent from Asian Cup 2007 and disappear from football for many month.
