Dennerby announces Sweden player roster for Olympics

National team head coach Thomas Dennerby earlier today announced the player roster for the Olympic games. It seems like he solved his problem with one defender too much by making Frida Östberg a midfielder. He commented that he liked to pick versatile players that can play in more than one position. The second goalkeeper spot is not decided. Either Carolina Jönsson or Kristin Hammarström will stay behind as an alternate.

This really looks like a pretty solid team. And they played the US quite well. If Sjögran chooses the Olympics to be her break-out tournament, that's just fine with me.

I agree. Sjögran played amazing against the US...she was always in the mix. I am excited to see what they can do this fall...
