Rasmus Christensen (born 12 August 1991) is a professional footballer who plays as a winger for Arendal in the Norwegian second-tier OBOS-ligaen.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Christensen came through the youth system at FC Midtjylland. He made his first team debut near the end of the 2010-11 season, coming on as a second-half substitute for Adigun Salami in a 5–2 defeat away to eventual champions FC Copenhagen.[2]

FC Midtjylland finished the season in fourth place, earning qualification to the following season's UEFA Europa League. In July 2011, Christensen was named in the squad to face Welsh club The New Saints in the second qualifying round of the 2011–12 Europa League.[3]

In a friendly match warm up for this European tie, against German 2.Bundesliga side St Pauli, Christensen suffered a cruciate ligament injury. It is expected that he will be out of the game for around nine months and be unable to participate in most of the 2011–12 campaign.[4]

International career[edit]

Christensen has gained international recognition for Denmark at under-17 and under-18 levels.[3] He played two games in the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship qualifying round, scoring once in a 2–0 victory against the Ukraine under-17s.[5] With the under-18s, he scored one goal in six appearances in 2008.
