Stine Larsen (born 24 January 1996) is a Danish professional footballer who plays as a forward for BK Häcken in the Swedish Damallsvenskan and for the Danish national team. She has earlier played for Brøndby IF of Denmark's Elitedivisionen and FC Fleury 91 in the Division 1 Féminine.

Club career[edit]

After joining Brøndby IF as a 12-year-old, Larsen progressed into the first team in 2013 and quickly became an important player.[1] Team coach Per Nielsen praised her as a potential female Kim Vilfort.[2]

On 30 July 2020, Larsen signed for newly-promoted Aston Villa in the Women's Super League.

International career[edit]

Larsen made her senior international debut for Denmark in January 2015, starting a 1–1 friendly draw with New Zealand in Belek, Turkey. Although she began her national team career as a defender, versatile Larsen was named as a forward for a UEFA European Championship 2017 qualifying Group 4 win over Slovakia in June 2016.[3] Due to tournament-ending injuries to teammates Janni Arnth and Mie Leth Jans, Larsen was reverted to playing as a defender for the national team at the UEFA European Championship 2017 and has been a starter in the defence since.
