Olympics: Sweden’s Semi-Official Roster

On Wednesday, Sweden released its roster for the women’s soccer tournament for this year’s Summer Olympics in Great Britain (SvFF).  Four players were not on the 2011 Women’s World Cup roster: Defenders Emma Berglund and Malin Levenstad, who have just 16 caps total between them; midfielder Johanna Almgren, a 2008 Olympics veteran; and forward Kosovare Asllani.  A few key veterans are not available due to injuries.  For more on Sweden’s injury woes, see the earlier post about their Volvo Winners Cup roster.
