Denmarks Daniel Jensen of Werder Bremen (werder.de)
Daniel Jensen - He started playing football for second division club B93 Copenhagen.
In 1998 he signed for Dutch club Heerenveen joining a list of many Danish players going in that direction.

After more than 100 league matches during his five years with Heerenveen and a national team debut in February 2002, his contract ran out in the summer of 2003 and he left the club on a free transfer.

His main target was to get a move to a Spanish league side and it was newly promoted Real Murcia who signed him on a one-year contract. Unfortunately Murcia ended at the bottom of the Spanish league and as a consequence of this Jensen wanted to leave the club.

He was called up to the Danish team for the Euro 2004 in June that year. He began the Euro 2004 tournament as a part of the Danish starting line-up in the first three matches before dropping to the bench for the fourth and final game.

After Euro 2004 he signed for German club Werder Bremen where he still plays.
