SWE and SA Teams Update

After right-back Hanna Lundkvist sustained an ankle injury during the team’s final pre-tournament friendly match against the Philippines and was forced to withdraw, Stina Lennartsson was brought in to fill her spot, giving Sweden coach Peter Gerhardsson a lot to deal with. While playing a round of golf, the latter was told of the call-up.

Star striker Fridolina Rolfo has acknowledged that she is still suffering with a chronic knee ailment and that she has been unwell, which prevented her from participating in training earlier this week.

Due to a thigh injury, Amanda Ilestedt was unable to complete Friday’s practice, and veteran central defender Linda Sembrant also left early. All of this is on top of Caroline Seger’s ongoing calf ailments, which have kept the nation’s most capped player from playing much football since April and, as she acknowledges, may limit her participation at the competition.

The current Olympic silver medalists, who are ranked third in the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s Ranking, are still viewed as legitimate title challengers despite injuries that have hampered their development. Therefore, it will be imperative to start Wellington’s match on a winning note. Read more
