Algarve Cup match-day 1

Sweden - Germany 1-2 (0-1)
Nothing new here, Sweden lost to Germany again. The swedish team was almost completely over-run by the germans in the beginning, but managed to work themselves back inte the game. Sara Johansson scored an equaliser for Sweden on an assist from Lotta Schelin, Sweden's player of the match. Since this was the first national team match since the rather meaningless Euro qualifier against Finland early October, when Sweden fielded a mostly second tier team, national team coach Marika Domanski Lyfors thought the play showed some promise: "We're never satisfied with a defeat, but we can feel good about our performance and try to build on that for the upcoming matches"

Sweden's squad: Hedvig Lindahl, Linköping - Hanna Marklund, Sunnanå, Malin Nykvist, Djurgården/Älvsjö, Karolina Westberg, Umeå (subbed at 64 for Jane Törnqvist, Djurgården/Älvsjö), Kristin Bengtsson (Djurgården/Älvsjö) - Lotta Schelin Kopparbergs/Göteborg, Malin Moström, Umeå (subbed at 82 for Frida Östberg, Umeå), Malin Andersson, Malmö FF (subbed at 60 for Caroline Seger, Linköping), Anna Sjöström, Umeå (subbed at 82 for Maria Karlsson, Linköping)- Hanna Ljungberg, Umeå (off injured at 49, Sara Johansson, Djurgården/Älvsjö subbed in), Salina Olsson, Hammarby (subbed out at 60 for Therese Sjögran, Malmö FF).

Hanna Ljungberg had to be carried off the pitch after a violent collision with Germany's goalkeeper Nadine Angerer. It looked worse than it was, though. She won't play against China, but will probably take part in one of the later games. Tabloid Aftonbladet reports that the media people at the english FA, that are responsible for marketing the European Championship, got a real scare when they thought they had lost their biggest poster name. "She's one of the few players who's name people recognise. And she has a very well known last name. Getting her and Freddie together just before the championship would be great", Alex Stone tells the paper.

France - USA 0-1 (0-1)
KIF Örebro's americans Kristine Lilly and Kate Markgraf both played the full 90 minutes as former KIF Örebro player Christie Welsh, now with Olympique Lyonnaise in France, scored the winner for USA.

Denmark - Finland 4-1 (2-1)
Finland, missing key players like Anne Mäkinen (Umeå IK) and Heidi Kackur (Kopparbergs/Göteborg)due to illness, suffered a heavy loss to the danish team. When Sanna Valkonen, also an Umeå player, has to leave the field after 30 minutes following a collision with her own goalie Finland found themselves in trouble most of the last 60 minutes. Anna-Kaisa Rantanen (Linköping), Jessica Julin (Umeå) and Laura Kalmari (Djurgården/Älvsjö) all played 90 minutes.
