Malmö signs Iceland's national team goalkeeper

LDB FC Malmö has signed Iceland's national team goalkeeper Thora Helgadottir as a replacement for injured Caroline Jönsson. Malmö's head coach Jörgen Pettersson says Helgadottir is at the top European level for goalkeepers, strong and composed. Thora, who is Malmö striker Asthildur Helgadottir's younger sister, trained with and played a couple of friendlies for Malmö last year. She is tied to the Belgian club Anderlecht and will initially be on loan to Malmö, starting with today's Swedish Cup semifinal against Umeå, until the league breaks for the World Cup.
Coach Pettersson said it's good for Malmö's young reserve keeper Stéphanie Öhrström not to be thrown into a top match against Umeå in the Swedish Cup, but instead being able to ease in to her new role.
