Sanne Troelsgaard Nielsen (born 15 August 1988) is a Danish football player who plays as a midfielder for FC Rosengård in Sweden's Damallsvenskan. Since 2008, she has been a part of the senior Danish national team.

Club career[edit]

In 2011, Troelsgaard was named Denmark's Player of the Year after scoring 29 goals in her first 15 matches for Skovbakken.[2] In February 2017, Troelsgaard signed for FC Rosengård in the Swedish Damallsvenskan.[3]

International career[edit]

Troelsgaard Nielsen made her senior international debut for Denmark in March 2008, playing the last four minutes of a 1–0 win over Finland at the 2008 Algarve Cup.[4] At the 2011 Matchworld Women's Cup in June 2011, she scored all three goals in the Danes' 3–0 win over Wales.[5]

A serious illness in the family caused Troelsgaard Nielsen to withdraw from national coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[6]
