After the important win over Linköping, Umeå head coach Andrée Jeglertz wrote on the club's website that he didn't want any more congratulations for the victory: "We have to perform just as well on Saturday [against Djurgården] or we will be back were we were before the Linköping match. Linköping and LDB are terrific teams and both good enough to win the league. We can never forget that. We are not even leading the league. It will take a lot of extremely hard work the remaining matches." It's hard not to agree with him, in particular after today's event, when a less-than-extremely-hard-working Umeå only managed to save one point, and that in a desperate last minute attempt.
Djurgården took the lead already in the 3rd minute, when the ball after a corner-kick shuffle landed with Anna Hall, who got a great shot from distance in Ulla-Karin Rönnlund's upper right corner. Untouchable. Djurgården played well and organized against an Umeå that didn't seem quite as into the game as they should have been. There was a lot of ball-watching, both in midfield and defense and lack of movement and sometimes an air of indecision, that made the play almost come to a halt in midfield.
And Umeå lost the ball much too easy. Djurgården's second goal came when Hingst stole the ball from a wandering Lisa Dahlkvist and gave Linda Sällström a perfect pass. She ran away from her defenders and scored alone with Umeå's keeper. Umeå's had more attacks than Djurgården, but they mostly ended up in naught. But Marta won a penalty shot for herself and it was 1-2 at halftime.
The second started like the first, with Marijke Callebaut getting Djurgården an early goal, pass from Victoria Svensson. Shortly after, Ariane Hingst had to leave after what looked like twisting her knee. Hingst has had problems with her right knee for some time and there has been talk about surgery after the season. Victoria Svensson moved to midfield and was replaced by Jennifer Meier in attack, which probably hurt Djurgården's forward play somewhat.
The last 30 minutes, Umeå worked with more speed and dedication and it paid off. Frida Östberg scored with a smoker from distance to make it 2-3. Then in another crowded box fight Madeleine Edlund kneed the ball into goal, where a lying Angerer made a kicking save. The play almost came to a complete standstill, as everyone waited for the referee to blow the whistle for goal. But no whistle came. The TV slow motion showed clearly that the ball was over the line before Angerer's kick, but it wasn't that easy to see from some distance.
Umeå continued to hunt for an equaliser, and when they got a corner-kick in the fourth minute of extratime, they threw everybody forward, including goalkeeper Ulla-Karin Rönnlund And it was Rönnlund who managed to force the ball in goal, coming rushing from outside and almost running over a couple of Djurgården defenders. The final whistle came almost immediately after. I don't think I've ever seen Umeå players so happy with a draw.

And since people have been searching the net for this:
There was an animated exchange of words between Djurgården's coach Anders Johansson and Umeå's assistant coach Steve Galloway after the match. The argument became so heated, that Djurgården's keeper Nadine Angerer saw it necessary to step in and push away Galloway from her coach. This and some goal-clips in a short video from TV4.
Why has Victoria Svensson moved to midfield? Lack of speed, or something else?
The older a player gets, the further back in the field they tend to move. That said, Victoria is still often fielded as a forward both in her club and in the national team. But personally I think she is better as an offensive midfielder or a trailing forward. She is good at recieving and holding the ball, got a good shot and makes great passes. But she doesn't speed away from defenders like she used to.
