Algarve Cup match-day 2

Sweden - China 2-0 (2-0)
National team coach Marika Domanski Lyfors changed the starting 11 almost completely compared to the Germany match - only Karolina Westberg and Lotta Schelin, who was moved from midfield to attack, remained. Besides Schelin two Linköping youngsters became starters, 19 year old Caroline Seger and 21 year old Maria Karlsson. The rather young team dominated China over the full 90 minutes. China played deep defense and it took more than half an hour before Sweden managed to break through. Frida Östberg, dominating performance in midfield, scored from the edge of the area in the 35th minute and Sara Johansson converted a great pass from Caroline Seger only 4 minutes later. Domanski Lyfors was pleased, "the more since several players have very little international experience".

Sweden's squad: Caroline Jönsson, Malmö FF  - Sara Larsson, Linköping, Karolina Westberg Umeå (subbed at 74 for Hanna Marklund, Sunnanå), Jane Törnqvist, Djurgården/Älvsjö, Sara Thunebro, Djurgården/Älvsjö - Therese Sjögran, Malmö FF (subbed at 80 for Malin Moström, Umeå), Frida Östberg, Umeå, Caroline Seger, Linköping (subbed at 72 for Malin Andersson, Malmö FF), Maria Karlsson, Linköping (subbed at 60 for Anna Sjöström, Umeå) - Sara Johansson, Djurgården/Älvsjö, Lotta Schelin, Kopparbergs/Göteborg (subbed at 65 for Salina Olsson, Hammarby).

Aftonbladet focuses on the successfull youngsters in their match coverage. "It's a dream come true - first getting on the squad, the subbing in against Germany and now starting. Of course I'm dreaming about the European Championship too", Caroline Seger says.

USA - Finland 3-0 (2-0)
Anne Mäkinen (Umeå) was back from her touch of the flu with a good performance, that wasn't enough against a superior US team. Sanna Valkonen (Umeå), Jessica Julin (Umeå), Anna-Kaisa Rantanen (Linköping) and Laura Kalmari (Djurgården-Älvsjö) also started. KIF Örebro players Kristine Lilly and Kate Markgraf both played the full match for USA, that also featured former Damallsvenskan players Hope Solo, several good saves in goal, and Christie Welsh, scoring the 1-0 and 2-0 goals.
