Christopher Robert "Chris" Iwelumo (born 1 August 1978) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Watford as a striker.

Iwelumo started his career with St Mirren before moving to Danish club Aarhus Fremad for two years. A move to Stoke City in 2000 saw him sent out on loan to several teams before a short-lived spell with 2. Fußball-Bundesliga side Alemannia Aachen. After moving to the Football League Championship with Colchester United and then Charlton Athletic, he signed for Wolves in 2008 as they won promotion to the FA Premier League, winning Player of the Month in November 2008.

Iwelumo's father is Nigerian and his mother is Scottish. He won his first cap as a full Scottish international coming on as a substitute against Norway in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier in 2008, notable for his missing an open goal from only yards out as the match finished 0 0 an event which Iwelumo has said "tortured" him. He had his first international start in a friendly against Argentina in November the same year.
