Boaz Solossa (born 16 March 1986) is an Indonesian professional footballer that currently plays for Persipura Jayapura in the Liga Super Indonesia. He is known by his high leveled dribbling technique and his crossing accuracy or short-passing with his left-foot.
Boaz 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. Boaz 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. Boaz obtained a Bachelor of Economics at Cenderawasih University in 2013. He also works as Civil servant.
In 2016 Boaz left Persipura for the first time in his career to play for Carsae FC in East Timor, joining fellow Indonesians Imanuel Wanggai and Oktovianus Maniani. However, in April 2016 having only made four appearances Boaz along with Wanggai left the club by mutal consent to rejoin Persipura.
Boaz international debut was against Turkmenistan in 2004 for the 2006 World Cup qualification where Indonesia won 3–1 and Boaz made two assists for his team mate Ilham Jaya Kesuma. Boaz was 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, Boaz managed to score 4 goals and along with Ilham Jayakesuma, who scored 7 goals, both led the top scorers chart.
After another failure for the Indonesian national team to become a champion in the 2016 AFF Championship, Boaz announce his retirement from the national squad to give chance to other young players as well admitting "tired to see Indonesia without any trophy in the tournament". He congratulate Thailand for their fifth trophy and acknowledge that "Thai players and their performances are much better and still far from us to reach". However, Boaz still disclosed his intention to retired, saying he want to discuss the matter with his family first while celebrating Christmas in his hometown of Sorong.
