Martin Braithwaite Christensen (born 5 June 1991) is a Danish footballer who plays as a forward who plays for the French Ligue 1 side Toulouse FC and the Danish national team. Christensen is of Guyanese descent.
Braithwaite started his youth career with Esbjerg before spending a short time at FC Midtjylland's sports academy. He moved back to Esbjerg after only a short time, signing a 3 year youth contract in 2007 before going on trials with both Reggina and Newcastle. He made his Esbjerg debut in 2009, making 63 Superligaen appearances for the club and scoring 12 goals, including nine in the 2012-13 season during which he appeared in every league game for the club. He won the Danish Cup with the club in 2012-13, scoring two goals in the semi-final second leg defeat of Brøndby IF.
Following his impressive displays for Esbjerg in the 2013 Danish Superliga spring season and the Danish Cup he was called up to the Danish national squad in the summer of 2013. At the same time he was being rumored to be attracting the interest of a number of European clubs including Auxerre, Rennes, Celtic and Hull City.
On August 14, 2013, whilst away on national duty for a friendly international against Poland, DR reported that Braithwaite had been sold to French club Toulouse FC for an estimated DKK 15 mil (roughly € 2 mil). Braithwaite started the match and scored Denmark's second goal.
Having already represented several Danish national youth teams, in the summer of 2012 Braithwaite was offered the chance to represent Guyana, being eligible through his Guyanese father. He declined the offer and went on to make his senior debut for the Danish national team in June 2013 in a friendly against Georgia, starting the game and playing the first half. He remained in the squad for the 2014 World Cup qualification match against Armenia. Braithwaite scored his first international goal in his second match in a friendly in August 2013 against Poland.
