Club Atlético Peñarol
Nicknamed El Mosky or El Jet Álvarez (The Jet Alvarez), he was linked to the Uruguayan club when he was 24. Uruguayan Peñarol was champion in 2003 after winning the Clausura finals against Nacional and hand coach Diego Aguirre. In that team unquestioned right side Honduran Edgar Alvarez was, who had come to the club after playing seven seasons at Deportivo Platense in his country. The player was considered by Diego Aguirre as important in his scheme.
After spending the 2006–07 season at Messina Álvarez returned to Roma. At the summer transfer period AS Roma bought Mauro Esposito and Álvarez decided to leave Roma for Livorno, who maintained an option to buy him for €2 million. He left Roma due to the surplus of right midfielders. After spending the 2007–08 season at Livorno, Alvarez returned to Roma, and spent a full pre-season with the club, But he was loaned for the 2008–09 season to Pisa on 1 September 2008.
F.C. Bari 1908
In 2009, he moved to Bari, on a permanent basis. The first year with the pugliesi turned out well. Under the guidance of Giampiero Ventura Álvarez became one of the best wings in Serie A. The second year did not turn out as well though and the club finished the season in last, moving to Serie B. Over two years Álvarez played in 65 league games, scoring 4 goals.
U.S. Città di Palermo
On 31 August 2011 Álvarez moved to Palermo as the player agreed to a two-year contract with the club.
FC Dinamo București
In July 2012, he moved to Liga I side Dinamo București and later signed a one-year contract with the Romanian side. He played only five games for Dinamo, his evolution being marred by his injuries. His contract was ended by mutual consent in December 2012.
Álvarez is known for his searing pace and acceleration, both on and off the ball. He is also very agile, making him very difficult for defenders to mark.
Álvarez played at the 1999 World Youth Cup and made his senior debut for Honduras in a 2001 UNCAF Nations Cup match against Panama, coming on as a second-half substitute for Mauricio Sabillón. As of July 2012, has earned 51 caps, scoring 3 goals.
