Key Players: Stina Blackstenius, Hanna Bennison and Fridolina Rolfö


  • 26-yer-old Stina Blackstenius has shown great talents in her earlier age, as she played for youth team of Sweden with 50 goals in her first 49 appearances, which was a stunning number.

  • When her name went big, she kept people remembering herself by scoring in the 2016 Olympic final even though they lost to Germany, also some important goals in the journey of their 3rd place in 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. In 2020 Olympic Games, she hit another 5 goals to earn another silver medal for Sweden.

  • Stina Blackstenius joined Arsenal in the winter of 2021. She played excellent tactics with another great striker in the gunners, Vivianne Miedema from Netherlands. Also, she definitely will be the knife for Sweden to stab into the heart of their opponents.


  • Hanna Bennison, a younger player who has made her debut for Sweden in 2019, at the age of 17.

  • She has made the biggest fee for any female player last year when she was transfered to Everton from Rosengård, at the age of 18. She has great potential and talent to fulfill.

  • With another young stars rising, Sweden will show great competitiveness in Women's EURO 2022.


  • 28-year-old Fridolina Rolfö has played for Barcelona this season with 12 goals and 16 assists in 37 appearances.

  • With 3 years in Bayern Munich and 1 in Wolfsburg, she knows exactly how to play against excellent players in the top leagues of women's football.

Manager: Peter Gerhardsson

  • 62-year-old Gerhardsson has coached for Häcken in 2009 to 2016. He took the job of Swedish female football team after Women's EURO 2017.

  • With great experience in men's team, he helps the female team adjust some tactics to improve the depth of the current roster. He was also selected into the nominated list of FIFA's coaches of the year in 2019 and 2021.



  • The Winners of the very first UEFA women's tournament in 1984, Sweden have reached the final of several major competitions since but are yet to add a second title. 

  • After losing to Germany in the Women's EURO 2001 and 2003 World Cup finals on golden goals, Sweden had something of a reputation for underperforming considering the talent they had at their disposal, notably surprise losses to Norway in the EURO semis of 2005 and quarters four years later.

  • But that just showed the high standards they were held to and in recent years they have become tournament specialists – notably their unexpected and gritty run to 2016 Olympic silver, earning 2019 World Cup bronze and then another Olympic silver in 2021, when they performed brilliantly throughout only to miss out on penalties behind Canada.
