Niels Poul "Tist" Nielsen (December 25, 1891 August 9, 1962) was a Danish amateur football player, who is the joint all-time leading goalscorer for the Danish national team with 52 goals in only 38 matches, averaging 1.37 goals per match, and won a silver medal with the Danish national team at the 1912 Summer Olympics. He played his entire club career as a forward for Kjøbenhavns Boldklub, with whom he won six Danish football championships.

The story goes that as a young boy Poul would sneak into football matches without paying, thus becoming a gratist ("free rider"), abbreviated to "Tist".
