FC København

Clubs: B 1913, Esbjerg fB, FC København

• Born in Odense and schooled at local club B 1913, Vingaard made his name in the Danish Superligaen with Esbjerg, scoring six goals from midfield in his first full season (2006/07).

• Esbjerg's joint top scorer with seven goals in 2007/08, he was en route to repeating that feat when he left to join København midway through the 2008/09 campaign.

• A Danish youth international, he graduated to senior level when he made his debut against the Netherlands (1-1) in Eindhoven on 29 May 2008; on his first start, against Poland in Chorzow four days later, he scored Denmark's goal in a 1-1 draw.

• Scored an added-time equaliser against Manchester City FC on his FCK debut – in the first leg of a UEFA Cup round of 32 tie – and found the net again, also in added time, as his side lost the return encounter 2-1.

• A key figure in København's 2009/10 Superligaen triumph, scoring six goals in 32 appearances, and even more influential in 2010/11, registering seven top-flight goals before Christmas and another two – both against Panathinaikos FC – in the club's successful UEFA Champions League group campaign.
