Katrine Søndergaard Pedersen (born 13 April 1977) is a Danish football midfielder. She plays for and captains the Denmark women's national football team, for whom she has accrued over 200 caps.

Club career

At club level Pedersen represents the Norwegian club Stabæk, as a result of Stabæk taking over the bankrupt club Asker FK at the end of 2008.

Most of Pedersen's club football has been played outside Denmark. During 2002–03 she played for the English professional club Fulham Ladies, where she won a domestic treble.[1] When Fulham reverted to semi-professional status several players left and Pedersen moved to Norway to join the Toppserien club IF Fløya based in Tromsø. After two seasons there she moved to spend the 2006 season playing in Stockholm, Sweden for the Damallsvenskan club Djurgården/Älvsjö. For the 2007 season she moved back to Norway to play for Asker SK in Oslo, and stayed there during 2008.

International career

Pedersen made her senior international debut in September 1994; a 1–0 win over the Netherlands in Hoogezand. She was in her national team in the 2005 UEFA Women's Championship in North West England, and was captain at the FIFA Women's World Cup 2007 in China. She also played in earlier World Cup competitions in 1995 (as an 18-year-old) and 1999, as well as UEFA Women's Championships in 1997, 2001 and 2009.[2]

When Pedersen was named in national coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 she was the most experienced active player in Europe, with 203 caps.[3]

Personal life

Pedersen works as a teacher and football trainer at a high-school in Oslo. In May 2011 her autobiography, 'Katrine', was published in Denmark.[4]
