The Chelsea goalkeeper believes her country can do well in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France.
Hedvig Lindhal is a legend in Chelsea and in the Sweden women’s national team.
The goalkeeper has amassed over 150 caps for her country, and she’s departing the Blues after many successful years.
“Super excited, it feels really special this time around. I’ve been to the World Cup quite a few times, 2003 I went to my first one,” she said to the club’s official site about the upcoming competition in France.
“This feels special, not only because it’s my final one but also because I feel like we actually have a track record with this group.”
She added: “It’s not super unrealistic to think that we can be among the top countries.”
“We can win against anyone on any given day and Sweden can be a team to be reckoning with.”
“A few of us have lots and lots of experience from these big tournaments and if we can share that with our younger peers and mix it with our young and enthusiastic players, then it will be good,” she explained.
“Probably, I’m going to give everything, I’m going to leave my mark and that’s what makes it so special.”
The stopper said: “I think it’s fine to be underdogs, looking back at our previous results, we have won against some good teams.”
“We’re ranked ninth but it depends on who you face if you make it to the knock-out stages.”
