Andrea Daniele Lombardo (born May 23, 1987) is an Italian-Canadian soccer player.

Club career[edit]

Lombardo began his professional career with Atalanta in 2004. In 2005 and 2006, he was loaned to Perugia and to Rieti.[2]

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.[3]

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. He made his debut for the club on May 8, 2010 in a match against TFC Academy.[4] The following week he would score his first goal for the club on May 16, 2010 against Brantford Galaxy.[5] He helped Portugal FC finish fifth in the overall standings and as a result qualified for a postseason berth. He featured in the quarterfinal match against Milltown FC, and scored a goal which resulted in a 2-2 draw.[6] In the semi-finals Lombardo recorded his second playoff goal in a 5-3 loss to Brantford Galaxy.[7] In the 2011 season he helped Toronto capture the Regular Season Championship, but were eliminated in the quarterfinals after their opponents the York Region Shooters won the penalty shootout by a score of 4-2.[8]

After this, he was released by TFC and announced his retirement after being unable to find another club.[9] He later came out of retirement[when?] 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.
