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


Club career

At the time of her call-up for the 2008 Olympics, Andreia Rosa had played in 181 games for Ferroviaria. 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 Ferroviaria did not enter.

In summer 2013 Andreia Rosa joined ambitious Norwegian club Avaldsnes, where she joined compatriots Rosana and Debinha.

International career

In November 2006 Andreia Rosa made her international debut in Brazil's 6–1 South American Women's Football Championship win over Bolivia at Estadio Jose Maria Minella, Mar del Plata. 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.

Andreia 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.

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

Personal life

She was born in Sao Lourenco do Turvo, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Andreia Rosa is a qualified physical education teacher and an Evangelical Christian.
