Jóannes Jakobsen (born 25 August 1961) is a former Faroese football defender, as well as musician and composer, having released three albums on the Faroe Islands and produced a number of albums for other artists. He is assistant coach of Faroe Islands.

Club career[edit]

He played over 20 years with Faroese top team, HB Tórshavn, where he also became player/coach in 1994. He was also player and manager of several other Faroese clubs.

International career[edit]

Jakobsen made his debut for the Faroe Islands in an April 1989 friendly match against Canada, immediately skippering them to their first ever win since joining FIFA. He remained captain of the team during those first years, most notably during their historic victory over Austria in 1990. His final international match was a September 1993 World Cup qualifying match against Romania. He has collected 25 caps, though never scoring any goals. [1]
