Alex da Rosa

Alex Rodrigo da Rosa Comelles , best known as Alex da Rosa, is a naturalized Bolivian football midfielder, who plays for the Club Bolivar in the Bolivian First Division.

Da Rosa began his career at the youth ranks of his hometown club Caxias. He continued playing in Brazil for other lower division clubs such as Esporte Clube Sao Bento, Uberlandia Esporte Clube and Esporte Clube Sao Jose. In 1999 Alex arrived in Bolivia for the first time and signed for big club Oriente Petrolero, however he did not live up the expectations and left after a couple of months. His next team was Hungarian side MTK Budapest FC where he played through 2000. Back in Bolivia he joined Mariscal Braun where he had an outstanding season. His performance bought him a transfer to The Strongest in 2002. For the next three years, he maintained a good form and scored several goals for the club, helping The Strongest win two national titles in that period. In 2004, he naturalized Bolivian hoping to get a call and play for the national team.

Since his naturalization, da Rosa has earned 5 caps for the Bolivian national team. He scored his first international goal for Bolivia on April 1, 2009, in that memorable victory over Argentina by 6-1 in La Paz.
