Lise Overgaard-Munk (born May 26, 1989) is a Danish football striker who plays for 1. FC Köln of the German Frauen-Bundesliga. She has previously played in the top Bundesliga with 1.FFC Frankfurt and for Danish Elitedivisionen teams Fortuna Hjørring and Brøndby IF.[1] She has also represented the Denmark women's national football team.

Club career[edit]

In the early part of her career Munk represented both Fortuna Hjørring and Brøndby in the UEFA Women's Champions League.[2]

After scoring 28 goals for Brøndby during the 2012 calendar year, Munk secured a transfer to 1.FFC Frankfurt in January 2013.[3] She scored two goals in six appearances but missed the entire 2013–14 season through injury and asked to be released from her contract a year early before 2014–15. By then she had recovered her fitness and was in search of regular first team football.[4] The following day she was unveiled as a 1. FC Köln player.[5]

International career[edit]

Munk scored a hat-trick in her senior Danish national team debut, a crushing 15–0 home win over Georgia in October 2009.
