Sándor Torghelle (born May 5, 1982 in Budapest) is a Hungarian footballer, playing as a striker. He came to prominence after scoring both goals in a 2-0 victory over Germany in a friendly match in 2004.

He played for Crystal Palace, after being signed from MTK Hungária in August 2004 for a fee of roughly £750,000. He wore the number 10 shirt, that of a first-choice striker, but found it hard to gain a regular place in the Crystal Palace first team with Andy Johnson often playing as a lone striker.

After 12 months at Palace, Torghelle was first stripped of his first-team squad number (given number 30, while 10 went to new signing Jon Macken), then loaned out to Panathinaikos in Greece for the 2006 season. In the deal, there was no clause for re-calling Sándor, and, thus, he spent the whole season in Greece. However, Torghelle failed to impress, and Panathinaikos chose not to make the deal permanent. In the 2007 season Torghelle was sent to PAOK FC Salonika, signing a 3-year contract. He lasted only one year before moving on to Germany where he played for Carl Zeiss Jena and FC Augsburg.
