Club career[edit]

Much-travelled Lexa was born in Klagenfurt but was raised in Germany. At the age of seven years he started at SV Heimstetten. As youth player he also played for TSV 1860 München. He spent a couple of years in the German Second division before winning promotion to the Fußball-Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt after he got relegated with them the season before. With Eintracht he also lost the 2006 DFB-Pokal final. After that final he moved back to the second division to play for 1. FC Kaiserslautern before making his debut in the Austrian Football Bundesliga with SV Ried in 2008. In 2002–03, he also played 11 games for Spanish Second Division side CD Tenerife.

The Carinthian was classified as a good dribbler and mostly played on the right wing.

International career[edit]

He debuted for Austria in an October 2001 World Cup qualification match against Israel under manager Otto Barić. As of April 2012, Lexa was capped six times, in doing so not being capped for four years between 2002 and 2006. His last international was a May 2006 friendly match against Croatia.
