Daniel Schmidt (シュミット・ダニエル Schmidt, Daniel, born February 3, 1992) is a Japanese football born-American player, who plays for Matsumoto Yamaga as a goalkeeper on loan from Vegalta Sendai.


Born from a union between American father and Japanese mother, Schmidt moved to Sendai at the age of 2, he went to Chuo University before signing for a professional Japanese club.[1] After three consecutive seasons as Special Designated Player of Kawasaki Frontale,[2] he decided to try the pro world in 2013.

He later signed for Vegalta Sendai,[3] but Schmidt played his first pro match during a one month-loan to Roasso Kumamoto in April 2014.[4] After playing his first ever game with Vegalta in J. League Cup, he was again loaned to Roasso, this time until the end of 2015 season.[5] A third loan was established in 2016, this time to Matsumoto Yamaga.[6]
