Lieke Elisabeth Petronella Martens (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈlikə eːˈlisaːbɛt peːtroːˈnɛlaː ˈmɑrtəns]; born 16 December 1992) is a Dutch footballer who plays for Swedish Damallsvenskan club FC Rosengård and the Netherlands national team. She can play as a midfielder and a forward.
Martens previously played for SC Heerenveen (2009–10) and VVV-Venlo (2010–11) in the Dutch women's Eredivisie, for Standard Liège (2011–12) in the Belgian Women's First Division, and for FCR 2001 Duisburg (2012–14) in the German women's Bundesliga. She moved to Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC of the Swedish Damallsvenskan in 2014.
Martens represented SC Heerenveen (2009–2010) and VVV-Venlo (2010–2011) in the Vrouwen Eredivisie and Standard Liège (2011–2012) in the Belgian First Division. In her first official match with Standard she scored two goals to help win her first major title, the newly founded BeNe Super Cup.
Signing for Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC ahead of the 2014 Damallsvenskan season, Martens made her debut against Vittsjö GIK. Although right-footed, she played on the left wing. Coach Stefan Rehn praised Martens' technique and her understanding with compatriot centre forward Manon Melis.
In June 2013, national team coach Roger Reijners selected Martens in the Netherlands squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden. She scored the Netherlands' first ever World Cup goal at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.
