Kopparbergs/Göteborg's keeper Maria Edman thought she strained her foot in the league match against Umeå, but a closer examination revealed a fracture in an ankle bone. It will take 10 to 12 weeks to heal and Göteborg needed to find an emergency replacement. They found her in former Jitex goalie Anna Rehnlund. Rehnlund recieved lots of praise for her contribution in Jitex goal last year, but had to retire from the team with back problems. She is now fit again and happy to help out in Göteborg. Since she is no longer tied to any club, she can join Göteborg immediately and probably shows up already against Qbik next week.
