Knut Erik Alexander Nordahl (13 January 1920-28 October 1984) was a Swedish footballer.

He played for IFK Norrköping and A.S. Roma. He won the gold medal at the 1948 Summer Olympics along with his brothers Bertil and Gunnar Nordahl. The two went to Italy after the Olympics (Bertil to Atalanta B.C. and Gunnar to AC Milan) and, due to playing in a professional football league while Swedish football was all amateur, they were not called to the 1950 FIFA World Cup. Knut stayed at Sweden and was called to the tournament.

After the World Cup, he was finally transferred to Italy, when he played for AS Roma.

He was capped 26 times for the Sweden national football team.
