Potential Game Changers:

Stats and facts:

  • Chile are the 5th team from South America to qualify for the World Cup.
  • While Sweden have appeared in all the world cups, qualify for the knockout stages in six of their last 7 tournaments.
  • Sweden have lost just once in four games against South American teams, winning three times.

Captain and Vice-Captain options:



Stina Blackstenius:
Caroline Seger’s injury problems and Lotta Schelin taking retirement, the powerful and the super fast Blackstenius will be the key to Sweden’s success in this world cup. She scored 3 times in seven games in the qualifying rounds.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Christiane Endler: Arguably the best women goalkeeper in the world at the moment, at 182 cm and considering her near un-human like reflexes, means Endler will be very hard to get past for any attacker.

Hedvig Lindahl Lindahl will be there to challenge Chile’s Endler in goal. She is a veteran of the game and has the experience to shine in the tournament.

María José Rojas – She will head to the tournament high on confidence after an immensely successful season with Slavia Praha in the Czech Republic. She has netted 12 goals in 20 games for the national team, making her Letelier’s most dangerous weapon up front.


X-Factors:

Both the teams boast highly talented young players who will be aiming to make a name for themselves.

Javiera Grez is the 2nd youngest player in the squad. She may be under five foot, but this diminutive forward has the chance to fly under the radar in France.

Anna Anvegård: Hailed as a player who knows how to find the back of the net by her national team manager,  Anvegård could set the whole tournament on fire if her club form is anything to go by. The 22-year-old has racked up an incredible 104 goals in just 89 appearances for Växjö.

SWE-W vs CHI-W Dream11 potential winner:
Sweden head into the tournament in incredible form and will start this game as favorite.
