Boaz Solossa[1] (born 16 March 1986) simply known as Boci 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.

In 2011, Boaz got an offer to play at Dutch club VVV-Venlo, but because of family reasons he chose to keep playing in Persipura Jayapura.[2]

Personal life[edit]

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.

Club career[edit]

East Timor[edit]

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.[3] However, in April 2016 having only made four appearances Boaz along with Wanggai left the club by mutal consent to rejoin Persipura.[4]

International career[edit]

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.

He got injured after a tough tackle in a friendly match against Hong Kong,[5] this made him absent from Asian Cup 2007 and disappear from football for many months.
