Rikke Læntver Sevecke (born 15 June 1996) is a Danish football defender who plays for Everton in the FA WSL. In 2016, she won her first cap for the senior Denmark national team.

Club career[edit]

Nykøbing Falster-born Sevecke began playing football as a three-year-old. She moved away from home to join Ballerup-Skovlunde Fodbold when she was 16 years old.[1] After establishing herself as one of the best young defenders in the Elitedivisionen, she became Per Nielsen's first signing for Brøndby IF in January 2015.[2]

In January 2018 Sevecke returned to Brøndby after a six-month spell playing college soccer for the University of Northwestern Ohio.[3]

International career[edit]

Sevecke appeared 25 times for the Denmark women's national under-19 football team, including at the 2013 and 2015 editions of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship. She made her senior international debut for Denmark at the 2016 Algarve Cup, in a 4–1 defeat by Iceland.
