the adorable friendship that is Ali Kriger and Sara Thunebro. They played together in Frankfurt. Sara played for the Swedish National Team (she retired after the 2015 WWC). They also played together when Ali and Ash played for Tyreso. They’re v cute.
Better planning next year, so I don’t have to come back and receive more of Lotta’s awards.
Lotta Schelin won best forward and a record fifth Diamond Ball at this year’s Swedish Fotbollskanalen. But like her fellow national teammates Caroline Seger (who won best midfielder) and Kosovare Asllani she was unable to attend because the event fell between two important Champions League fixtures.
Defender Sara Thunebro accepted the award in her absence and took the opportunity to publicly call out the Swedish Football Association for continuing to only take into account the men’s calendar.
