Eduardo Andre Cocherari Cohen (born 23 January 23 1980) is a Guatemalan international footballer who most recently played for Deportivo Petapa.

Early life[edit]

Cocherari was born in San Salvador, El Salvador, the son of the Argentine former footballer Raúl Héctor Cocherari, who was playing for Alianza FC as an expatriate. Therefore, he held dual Salvadoran-Argentine nationality. During his childhood, he lived in Guatemala, then becoming a citizen of that country. Cocherari came back to El Salvador in the 90s when his father was signed as coach of Cojutepeque FC.

Club career[edit]

El Salvador-born Cocherari played for ADET, San Salvador F.C.[1] and Alianza F.C. in El Salvador and Aurora F.C. in Guatemala before joining Petapa in 2004. In 2005 he scored the second goal that definitely lifted Petapa back into the Guatemalan Premier League[2]

International career[edit]

Cocherari made his debut for Guatemala in a May 2001 UNCAF Nations Cup match against Costa Rica and has, as of January 2010, earned a total of 6 caps, scoring no goals. He has collected all of his caps at that UNCAF Cup tournament.[3]

Cocherari's mother, Lucy Cohen, is also from Argentina. Despite her Jewish surname, she is a Christian.[4]
