Roger Boli (born 26 September 1965 in Adjame, Côte d'Ivoire) is a French former footballer who played striker for clubs in the French and British leagues. He is currently an agent in France.

Boli, older brother of Basile, started his career with AJ Auxerre, where he spent four seasons. A season at Lille OSC followed, before a long spell with RC Lens. During his seven seasons with the club, Boli won promotion to Ligue 1, and finished joint-top scorer in the 1993-94 season. A season was spent with Le Havre AC before moving to England with Walsall in 1997. Boli's twelve league goals with the Saddlers drew attention from Scottish side Dundee United and Boli moved north in a £150k deal in 1998. Injuries restricted him to just three league appearances, although he did score once in the Scottish League Cup against Stirling Albion,[1] and within three months a £100k move saw him head to AFC Bournemouth. Boli's seven appearances would be his last before retiring in the summer of 1999.

In May 2001, Boli arranged a benefit match - Le Jubilé de Roger Boli - which saw past and present Lens players play against a team of French superstars (Zinedine Zidane, Marcel Desailly, Patrick Vieira, Eric Cantona, Jean-Pierre Papin, etc). Lens won 7-2, with the match proceeds going to the Raoul-Follereau association.
