Charles Desmond "Charlie" Davies (born June 25, 1986 in Manchester, New Hampshire) is an American soccer player who plays as a striker for D.C. United in Major League Soccer, on loan from French Ligue 1 side Sochaux.

Davies set several soccer records at his high school, the Brooks School, before appearing for the Boston College Eagles and the Westchester Flames in college. Davies signed his first professional contract with Swedish Allsvenskan club Hammarby IF in December 2006 before joining Sochaux in July 2009.

Davies has been capped sixteen times for the United States national team, with four international goals.

On October 13, 2009, Davies was involved in a serious car crash on the George Washington Parkway which killed a fellow passenger and left Davies with severe injuries that kept him out of the 2010 World Cup.
