Sweden Women's Team profile: key players, full squad list, coach for 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

May 16, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Live Soccer TV takes a look at Sweden's team ahead of the upcoming World Cup. Will they improve on their performance from the last tournament four years ago?

What is Sweden's history in the FIFA Women's World Cup?

To date, Sweden have appeared at each and every single FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments since the competition's inception in 1991. However, despite being part of a small group of women's sides, a spot on the winner's podium has repeatedly eluded the Blågult.

So far, they have earned one runners-up finish (2003) as well as two bronze medals (1991 and 2011), and with the exception of a shockingly bad showing at the 2007 Women's World Cup, Sweden have consistently done pretty well at this competition - although they failed to meet high expectations four years ago in Canada when they crashed out early in the round of 16.

What is Sweden's group at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Sweden are in Group F. For more information and analysis on the Swedish's Last 16 qualification chances, check out Group F: USA, Chile, Sweden, Thailand - 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup teams.

What is Sweden's full squad list for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Goalkeepers: Hedvig Lindah, Jennifer Falk, Zecira Musovic

Defenders: Jonna Andersson, Linda Sembrant, Hanna Glas, Nilla Fischer, Magdalena Eriksson, Amanda Ilestedt, Nathalie Bjorn

Who are the key players to watch for Sweden at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

With all-time top goal-scorer Lotta Schelin having to retire early due to chronic head and neck pain stemming from an injury, one striker who will be hungry to fill her shoes will be young and upcoming talent Stina Blackstenius. She played a vital role for Sweden during their qualifying game as they picked up seven wins following a surprise 1-0 opening loss to Ukraine, netting three goals during that.

Then there's Kosovare Asllani. Compared to none other than Zlatan Ibrahmovic due to her Balkan background (her parents hail from Albania) and playing style, the 29-year-old has aquired 90 caps for her side and was part of the Swedish team that earned a silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games.

Who is Sweden's coach?

Peter Gerhardsson will be the man in charge of Sweden this summer. A former forward, he has overseen 15 matches for Sweden since taking over in 2017 from Pia Sundhage. So far (as of early May), he has started off well, guiding them to 11 wins from their qualifying games and friendlies, but this will be his first major test this summer.
