Hanna Ljungberg uncertain about World Cup spot

Hanna Ljungberg tells public service broadcaster Svt, that she is by no means certain that she will be on Thomas Dennerby's squad for the World Cup in China. Hanna is slowly coming back from her injuries and has started with ball exercises on training, but has yet to play. There is a small chance that she will participate in the Swedish Cup final next week, but "my only chance is to get completely fit first". She is not up to taking any risks.

Other comments on the 30 player list:

Sunnanå's Maria Nordbrandt is thrilled to be on the preliminary 30 player list, but doesn't dare to hope that she will get to China - "that seems really far away". Her coach Kenneth Isaksson is really happy for her and says that she has developed a lot this year, but to reach the next level, to become an international top player, "she has to believe more in herself".

Örebro's coach Richard Holmlund talks to Umeå fan-site uikfans.se and thinks his defender Stina Segerström is an obvious choice, Sweden's best besides Hanna Marklund. He also rates Örebro goalie Kristin Hammarström over Carola Söberg and Hedvig Lindahl, "only Sofia Lundgren is better". He is sceptical to Hedvig Lindahl's possibilities to get her timing and coordination back in time for the tournament.

Carola Söberg, who joined Umeå from Mallbacken this winter, is pleased to be on the list and admits that she will be disappointed if she doesn't get to go to China. A problem for Carola is that she has been benched at Umeå for some of the summer matches. "That doesn't benefit her chances", comments national team coach Thomas Dennerby.

Malmö's head coach Jörgen Pettersson reacted surly to Dennerby's decision to pick veterans Kristin Bengtsson and Jane Törnqvist for the 30 player list. Of the 12 defensive players on Dennerby's list no one is from Malmö. Malmö's young defense has the fewest goals against of all teams in the league. "I was really surprised to see that no one from our defense line was picked".
Thomas Dennerby answers Pettersson's critic in an interview at damfotboll.com: "This is the World Cup and I have hard to imagine picking players without prior national team experience ... What would you do if for instance Hanna Marklund got injured. Would you put that responsibility on the young shoulders of [Malmö's 18 year old defender] Malin Levenstad?" Bengtsson and Törnqvist are on the list as back-ups, he says, and points out that if this was a European qualification match, he would have picked more "players for the future".
