Christine Colombo Nilsen (born April 30, 1982) is a Norwegian football goalkeeper. She currently plays for Lyon. She is also a member of the Norway women's national football team.

She has appeared six times for the national team and made her debut on March 11, 2006 in a match against Finland. She was a member of the 2007 Women's World Cup squad.

On June 9, 2008 Nilsen was named to the Norwegian roster for the 2008 Summer Olympics to be held in Beijing, China.

Nilsen left Olympique Lyonnaise in July 2010 and returned to Norway with no plans to continue in football. But she was persuaded to stand in goal for Arna-Bjørnar for a few games in the autumn while Erika Skarbø was injured, and was also a member of the Norway national squad that in September qualified for the 2011 World Cup.
