Stina Lykke Petersen (born 9 February 1986) is a Danish football goalkeeper who plays for Danish club Kolding Q and the Denmark women's national football team.

Club career[edit]

Lykke Petersen began playing football aged five in her hometown Højby.[1] In 2007, she attended Rollins College in Florida and played NCAA college soccer.[2]

Following a successful UEFA Women's Euro 2013 tournament with Denmark, Lykke Petersen secured a transfer from Brøndby to FCR 2001 Duisburg. She had compiled three Elitedivisionen titles and four Danish Women's Cups in her time with Brøndby.[3] In 2016 Lykke Petersen transferred to Kristianstads DFF, after playing in Odense's first three matches of the Danish season.[4]

International career[edit]

She was called into the Denmark squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2005 as an uncapped player.[5]

After a knee injury to regular goalkeeper Heidi Johansen, Lykke Petersen was elevated to first choice for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[6] In Denmark's opening group match against hosts Sweden she saved two second half penalty kicks from Lotta Schelin and Kosovare Asllani, respectively, to secure a 1–1 draw.[7]

Denmark progressed to the quarter-finals on the drawing of lots, where they shocked France in a penalty shoot-out after a 1–1 draw. Lykke Petersen stopped Louisa Nécib's kick in the shoot-out, after narrowly failing to keep out the same player's penalty goal during the match.[8] Denmark's run came to an end in the semi-final when they lost another penalty shoot-out to Norway.
