Willi Lindner (27 June 1910 – 5 March 1944) was a German footballer.

While signed at Eintracht Frankfurt he gained his only cap for the Germany national football team in Berlin against France. Then manager Otto Nerz substituted him for Richard Hofmann in the half time break since the crowd wanted to see Hofmann play.

Lindner fought in World War II, and died in 1944.
