Andréia Rosa de Andrade (born July 8, 1984), known as Andréia Rosa,[note 1] is a Brazilian football defender who plays for the Brazilian women's national team and the Norwegian Toppserien club Avaldsnes.

Club career[edit]

At the time of her call-up for the 2008 Olympics, Andréia Rosa had played in 181 games for Ferroviária. In those matches she had scored 42 goals from her centre-back position and been sent off only once. In 2007, she was loaned to Saad for the inaugural Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino, which Ferroviária did not enter.[1]

In summer 2013 Andréia Rosa joined ambitious Norwegian club Avaldsnes, where she joined compatriots Rosana and Debinha.[2]

International career[edit]

In November 2006 Andréia Rosa made her international debut in Brazil's 6–1 South American Women's Football Championship win over Bolivia at Estadio José María Minella, Mar del Plata.[3] In July 2008 she was involved in a "violent collision" with Abby Wambach during the first half of a friendly match in San Diego. Wambach suffered a broken tibia and fibula, requiring a titanium rod to be inserted into her left leg.[4]

Andréia Rosa was included in Brazil's 18-player squad for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and started the team's first match; a 0–0 draw with Germany at Shenyang Olympic Sports Center Stadium. Although she took no further part in the competition, she won a silver medal when Brazil lost the final 1–0 after extra time to the United States.[5]

She narrowly missed selection for the Brazilian FIFA Women's World Cup squad in both 2007 and 2011.[6]

Personal life[edit]

She was born in São Pedro do Turvo, São Paulo, Brazil.[7] Andréia Rosa is a qualified physical education teacher and an Evangelical Christian.[8]
