Daniel Moreira (born August 8, 1977 in Maubeuge) is a former French footballer. He played as a striker.

Moreira started his career with Valenciennes FC before moving to Guingamp. He finished as the runners-up of the 1997 Coupe de France playing for them.

In 1998, he transferred to RC Lens. He won the Coupe de la Ligue with the Les Sang et Or in 1999. After spending six years at Stade Félix Bollaert, he was rewarded with a move to Toulouse FC. In the 2005 06 season, he formed a formidable attacking partnership alongside Brazilian-born Tunisian forward Santos, scoring 15 goals between them in Ligue 1.

On June 22, 2006, Moreira agreed to join Stade Rennais for a fee of -5,500,000.

Moreira made a less than impressive season at his new club, not scoring after 29 appearances (17 of them as starter). In 2008, he was then loaned to recently promoted Grenoble where, on August 9, he scored a goal for his debut against Sochaux at the 89th minute to ensure an unexpected 2 1 away win for Grenoble's first Ligue 1 game for 43 years.

In August 2009 he transferred to US Boulogne. After a complicated knee injury, he retired from professional football in December 2010.

Moreira has earned 3 caps in his career, making his debut for the France national team on November 20, 2002 in a 3 0 win against Serbia.
