Alexandros Tzorvas plays for the team Greece national football team
In 2005 Panathinaikos recalled him from loan as a cover for Mario Galinović and Pierre Ebede.
A lack of first team opportunities led to his trade to OFI with Orestis Karnezis – also a hot goalkeeping prospect – following the opposite path. A streak of very good performances made him quickly a starter for the team from Crete even though his transfer was scrutinized by OFI fans, mainly because of what they see as one sided "colonial"-style agreements that their team is signing with Panathinaikos. In 2008, Tzorvas became the Second Greek Best Goalkeeper behind the legendary Antonis Nikopolidis.
On 21 March 2008, Otto Rehhagel called Tzorvas as third choice goalkeeper for the friendly against Portugal on 26 March at Frankfurt, Germany. After the retirement of Antonis Nikopolidis from the national team, Tzorvas became the second goalkeeper for Greece. He was named at the 23 man squad for UEFA Euro 2008. He made his senior international debut for Greece on 19 November 2008 in a friendly match against 2006 FIFA World Cup champions Italy at the Karaiskákis Stadium in Piraeus.
One of Tzorvas's greatest career accomplishments to date came in Greece's 2009 home-and-away World Cup playoff with Ukraine. Tzorvas turned away the Ukrainian attack for the entire 180 minutes over ties in Athens and Donetsk, sustaining the Greeks' 1–0 aggregate victory that sent the team to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
At the 2010 FIFA World Cup, he was the starting goalkeeper in all three group matches, beating off competition from Kostas Chalkias and Michalis Sifakis. At the UEFA Euro 2012, however, Kostas Chalkias took over his spot, and Michalis Sifakis played in the final group stage match against Russia and the quarter final against Germany.
On 26 August 2011 he moved to Italy, joining Serie A club Palermo for €700,000; the player agreed a two-year contract with the club and will wear the No. 33 jersey for the Sicilian club, replacing Salvatore Sirigu who left weeks earlier in order to join Paris Saint-Germain FC. He debuted in rosanero on 11 September 2011, in the match won 4–3 against Inter in Serie A. Originally hired as starting goalkeeper, he fell out of favour with head coach Devis Mangia following some unimpressive performances and ultimately lost his place to Francesco Benussi. He was confirmed as second choice also by Bortolo Mutti, who replaced Mangia as Palermo boss in December, and then clearly relegated on the bench after Palermo opted to sign promising Italian international Emiliano Viviano during the January 2012 transfer window from Genoa.
In the summer 2012 he moved to Genoa in definitive deal for €600,000 in 1-year contract, together with youth team striker Daniel Jara Martínez in temporary deal, in an exchange deal that took Swiss defender Steve von Bergen at Palermo for €1.7 million. The Greek international ‘keeper will back-up expected starter Sebastien Frey, while also competing with Canadian ‘keeper Robert Stillo for a spot on the bench. On 17 March 2013, Alexandros Tzorvas made his Genoa debut away to Fiorentina. His first game with the club was a catastrophe, as he smothered a Stevan Jovetić snapshot, but David Pizarro hit a fierce effort that took a massive deflection to loop over the goalkeeper and land on the crossbar. On 9 July 2013 Tzorvas returned to Greece to play for the newly promoted club of Apollon Smyrni as a free agent.

On 18 August 2013, he made his debut with the club in a 2–1 home win against Aris. Tzorvas decision to return to Greece was not an easy one, knowing the differences between Serie A and Super League, but his enormous desire to regain his position in the Greek national football team made him sign a contract with a team that is among the favorites for relegation. Eventually, he succeeded to be among Fernando Santos calls' for a friendly against South Korea
On 1 September 2014 it was reported that he has signed a contract with NorthEast United FC to play in Indian Super League He started his first match against Kerala Blasters FC, he was named man of the match with a clean sheet.
