Much better game than in the group play. Sweden showed a lot of the play that has been wanted, dominated most of the first half, nice passing play, ball mostly to the ground, good movement in the offensive half. Norway relied a lot on long balls and really fast counters and their forwards are great to watch. Norway took over in the second half, maybe Svensson's early injury played a part here. Her reborned cooperation with Hanna Ljungberg had resulted in one goal and some dangerous situations in the first half.

Still, I would rather have had them play badly and win than play good and lose.

I found your site thru a web search. I note your mentions of Sweden and Bente Norby and your command of English so could I trouble you for some information on the Nordic Cup in July?

My duaghter plays for the USA u-21 squad and my wife and I might like to come visit Sweden.

Matches and locations would be great. Anything else about accomodations and travel would also be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, My name is Eniola Aluko and I am a female footballer currently playing in the English womens premier division with Charlton Athletic and also played in the 2005 European Championships with England which also featured Sweden in our group.I was lucky to play 90 minutes against Sweden in the final group game but was also bitterly disappointed to get knocked out by Sweden.However I have great admiration for the Swedish National team and its world class players and have been advised by my agent to find out more information about playing in the Damallsvenskan,Swedish League in the near future. I randomly came accross this website,which thankfully is in English and am so impressed with the wide range of information,pictures,video clips etc at hand.Also I have recently found out that there are several wide class American,Finnish and Brasilien players currently playing in the top Swedish teams, I don't think there are any English players but that does not matter as Iam very open to playing football in a new country with new players..It would be very much appreciated if you could send me information and contact details of the top five-six teams in the league.Whilst I was away in the England team hotel I frequently spoke to Caroline Seger who I previously spoke to in last years Nordic U21s tournament but do not know what team she plays for or little info on other teams.My email is hope to hear from you
