Record number of foreign players in Damallsvenskan

Last year 20 foreign players found a place in a Damallsvenskan team. This year it's 29. So far - there are usually a few more signings during the summer transfer window. Most players and coaches still thinks this is a good thing.

- "It is really good for Swedish women's football", says Umeå's coach André Jeglertz. "We just have to be carefull that we don't start signing many average quality players"

Djurgården/Älvsjö's start Victoria Svensson agrees: "It shows that Damallsvenskan is a world class league and so far almost only world class players have come here."

KIF Örebro's Pia Sundhage says that she prefers to work longtime with her players, something that wasn't possible with the Americans Kristin Lilly and Kate Markgraf last year. "Where we are now, it is more interesting to work with players, that will stay for several years."
