Daniel Xuereb (born 22 June 1959) is a former football striker from France, who earned eight international caps (one goal) for the French national team during the 1980s. A player of RC Lens (1981–1986), he was a member of the French team in the 1986 FIFA World Cup, after having won the gold medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California, scoring in the Gold Medal game itself.

Xuereb was the first player in World Cup history whose last name began with 'X', which was the last letter to be represented.[1]

He coached CA Digne and Pertuis in the 1990s, and AS Aix from 2008 to 2009.[2]
