Algarve Cup: Last minute goal takes Sweden to group final
Sweden: Caroline Jönsson - Anna Paulson, Charlotte Rohlin, Stina Segerström, Frida Östberg (69 Marlene Sjöberg) - Caroline Seger (82 Salina Olsson), Victoria Svensson, Therese Sjögran (69 Nilla Fischer) - Lotta Schelin, Therese Lundin (69 Sara Johansson), Josefine Öqvist (78 Frida Nordin)
Goals: 1-0 Charlotte Rohlin (90)
Two late substitutions proved to be decisive when Sweden defeated China with a last minute goal. Salina Olsson earned a free-kick as she was tripped not far from China's penalty area and Frida Nordin executed the free-kick with precision for Charlotte Rohlin to tap in.
Sweden started well and created much more than China the first half and could have been a couple of goals up with better finishing. China gained more ground late in the first half, playing rather physical and close and making good use of set pieces. A couple of minutes before Sweden's goal they had their best chance, saved on the goalline by Marlene Sjöberg.
Sweden had, as common in Algarve Cup, made changes in the starting 11 from the match against Finland, but continues with the modified 4-3-3 formation. It seems to work ok, better against Finland than China, but still doesn't inspire complete confidence. Moving down Svensson to the attackning mid position, that Sjögran had against Finland, and replacing her with Lundin on top didn't really work out for either of them. On the other hand, Rohlin and Segerström as centre-backs made you realize that Hanna Marklund isn't completely indispensable.

Charlotte Rohlin had a great game against China (and Finland even though she had very little to do), she has shown herself to be a very serious coontender alongside Marklund, Segerstrom and Westberg for a starting position. Well done to her and a nice goal to cap it off :)
