Julie Rydahl Bukh (born 9 January 1982) is a Danish football midfielder who plays for Brøndby IF and the Denmark women's national football team. She is described by UEFA.com as a technically gifted and creative left-sided attacking midfielder.[1]

Club career[edit]

Rydahl Bukh won six successive Elitedivisionen championships with Brøndby IF, before moving to Swedish club Linköpings FC alongside Cathrine Paaske-Sørensen in November 2008.[2] She was recovering from a serious knee injury and did not play until March 2009. Rydahl Bukh and Paaske-Sørensen left three games before the end of Linköpings' championship-winning season for contracts with Sydney FC in the Australian W-League. Rydahl Bukh struck the winning goal in Sydney's 3–2 Grand Final win over Brisbane Roar.

After leaving Sydney FC, Rydahl Bukh and Paaske-Sørensen had expected to join the American Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) league, having signed contracts with Los Angeles Sol. When the Sol went into liquidation Rydahl Bukh returned to Denmark and joined Brøndby's sworn rivals Fortuna Hjørring instead. In January 2011 she rejoined Brøndby, after a short interlude with Pali Blues.[3]

International career[edit]

In March 2001 Rydahl Bukh made her senior international debut against Finland. She scored her first goal in her second appearance, the Danes' 2–1 defeat to Italy in their opening group game at UEFA Women's Euro 2001.[4]

Injury kept Rydahl Bukh out of UEFA Women's Euro 2005, but she returned to the team for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup and UEFA Women's Euro 2009.

She was named in national coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller's Denmark squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[5]
