Club career

Raised in Regstrup, near Holbæk, Boye began playing football with Jernløse IF. She has a weakness in her eardrums which causes them to perforate easily.[3]

In 2012, Boye attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she played college soccer for the UTSA Roadrunners. Finding the standard slightly lower than she was used to at home, Boye returned to her Danish club BSF after the American season.

Boye signed for Brøndby IF in the Danish Elitedivisionen in 2013 and was deployed as a central midfielder at club level. Equally comfortable defending or attacking, she represented Brøndby in the UEFA Women's Champions League. She was voted 2014 Danish Football Player of the Year.[4] She was later appointed captain of Brøndby. In June 2017, she signed for FC Rosengård in Damallsvenskan.

International career

Boye made her debut for the senior Denmark women's national football team in December 2011, a 4–0 win over Chile at the São Paulo International Tournament. She entered play as a substitute for Mariann Gajhede Knudsen on 83 minutes.

An injury sustained at the 2013 Algarve Cup kept Boye out of contention for a place in Denmark's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[5] In November 2014, it was reported that national coach Nils Nielsen was building his team around Boye, who had shown some of the same defensive qualities as Denmark's male captain Daniel Agger.[6]

In 2017, Boye was named to Denmark's UEFA Women's Euro 2017 squad.

Danish Football Player of the Year

The Danish Player of the Year award is an annual prize, which has been given to the best Danish football (soccer) player by the Danish Football Association since 1963. The winner is decided in a vote among the professional Danish footballers.

Jens Petersen was the first player to win the award in 1963. When receiving the award in 1975, Henning Munk Jensen became the first player to win the prize for a second time. Up until 1978, the Danish Football Association's rule of amateurism meant only players in the domestic league could win the prize. Even after the emergence of paid football in Denmark in 1978, no players in foreign clubs were eligible for the award - in part, the reason why 1977 European Footballer of the Year striker Allan Simonsen didn't win the award, as he played abroad from 1972 to 1983. When the award was finally opened to all Danish players in 1983, national team captain Morten Olsen was the first player to win the award. Record title holders are

Brian Laudrup and Christian Eriksen, with four "Danish Player of the Year" honours each to their names. Brøndby IF is the football club with most players selected for the award: In total, the honour was given on eight occasions to a player who played that year at Brøndby.

Since 2000, there has also been an award for the top female player. The winner is decided by a vote among all Elitedivisionen players.
