Jesús Luis Álvarez de Eulate (born 4 September 1970 in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain), commonly known as Koldo, is a naturalized Andorran football goalkeeper, who has been representing the Andorra national football team. He currently plays for Andorra in the Spanish Divisiones Regionales de Fútbol.

He was the substitute goalkeeper in the Atlético Madrid team that won the Copa del Rey 1991 Final.

In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Andorra by the Andorran Football Federation as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years.

Following Andorra's 6 0 loss to England, at Wembley Stadium, in a World Cup Qualifier in June 2009, Koldo retired from international football. Koldo was the only reason the score was kept to six, making several excellent saves throughout the match. Koldo received a standing ovation from England's fans for his efforts after he was substituted in injury time.
