Harold "Harry" Kewell (born 22 September 1978) is an Australian professional football midfielder who plays for Melbourne Victory in the A-League. Internationally he has received 54 caps, and scored 16 goals, while playing for the Australian national team. An exceptional dribbler on the wing, also capable of playing as an attacking midfielder and as a second striker, he is often regarded within the media as "Australia's finest football export", despite his career being blighted with injury.

Kewell scored a goal against Croatia which took Australia through to the knockout stages of the 2006 World Cup, the Australian national team's second World Cup. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Australian Professional Footballers' Association. Kewell also has a British passport through his father's heritage. Former Middlesbrough midfielder-turned pundit Robbie Mustoe named Kewell as one of the greatest players he had played against but questioned his consistency after his initial injuries. German international Michael Ballack has also highlighted Kewell's ability and inconsistency.
