List of Denmark international footballers

Goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel (129 caps) is the most capped Danish footballer of all time, and the first Dane to reach 125 caps. He represented Denmark in four European Championships and the 1998 World Cup. He was on the 1992 European Championship winning team and was named World's Best Goalkeeper of the Year in 1992 and 1993.

This list of Denmark international footballers contains football players who have played for the Denmark national football team, listed according to their number of caps. As more than 750 players have played for the team since it started officially registering its players in 1908, only players with 25 or more official caps are included. Goalkeeper Sophus Hansen was the first Dane to reach 25 caps, doing so on June 5, 1919. Since then, more than 120 Danish footballers have reached 25 caps for the Danish national team.
