William Kvist Jørgensen (born February 24, 1985) is a Danish football player for F.C. Copenhagen. He is an allround player who can be used in most defense and midfield positions but his favorite position is the central midfield. Although, he was picked out to relieve Lars Jacobsen on right back in the club in the autumn 2007,[1] until Zdeněk Pospěch was bought to the position.

He has totally played 43 matches and scored 4 goals for various youth national teams, and a few matches for the A national team.



Born in Rønde in Jutland, Kvist started his football career as a five old in the local club Thorsager Rønde IF. Two years later he moved to Copenhagen where he started in KB, one of the two clubs behind F.C. Copenhagen. While at KB, he made his debut for the Danish youth national teams in November 2000 and played 4 matches at the 2002 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.

As child he also played handball, and is therefore known for his very long throw-ins. As a youth player he achieved to win the Danish youth championship in both handball with FIF and football with KB within the same year. He was also the captain of both teams.

William was promoted to the first team in 2004. He debuted on 2005-04-23 against FC Nordsjælland where he replaced an injured Ole Tobiasen on the right back position. His first F.C. Copenhagen goal came on October 22, 2006 in a 3-0 win against Viborg FF, where he scored the last goal from long range.

Against Ajax Amsterdam in the UEFA Champions League 3rd qualification round 2006 it was Kvist's pass that deflected off Ajax-defender Thomas Vermaelen for an own-goal. This goal eventually sent F.C. Copenhagen through to the Champions League Group Stage.

In the season 2005-06, he often came in as substitute on mostly the left wing - a position he didn't enjoy playing. He has also played in defence and other midfield positions.

Kvist was called up for the league national team, which will play a number of unofficial national team games in the United States, El Salvador and Honduras in January 2007, by national team manager Morten Olsen. He was in the starting lineup for all 3 games of the tour, including a 3-1 loss to the United States national team on January 20, 2007.

After the right-back Lars Jacobsen travelled to 1. FC Nuremberg in the summer 2007 was Kvist nominated by coach Solbakken to be the new right back in the club,[1] after having looked at about 50 different players, without result.[2] On August 13 proved Kvist that he only wished to play the position until Christmas, when he rather would evolve as a central midfield player, where he himself thinks he is best.[3]

Although, he has played 6 of his 7 matches for the Danish national team as right back. He was first called up on August 17, 2007 to the friendly match against Ireland on August 22,[4]. He is by many football experts called an international right back, but only an average midfielder.
