Here is the Swedish squad for the fateful matches in the Olympic qualifiers

Peter Gerhardsson has not given up hope of an Olympic summer in Paris.

The captain of the women’s national football team has selected an experienced squad for the last two games in the Nations League – which are also Olympic qualifiers. Both Caroline Victory as Kosovar Asllani is included in the Swedish midfield just like Magdalena Eriksson and Jonna Andersson in the back line.

Sweden is currently second in the Nations League group. With six points left to play for, the national team is five points behind world champion Spain. Only one team advances to the Olympics.

Sweden meets Switzerland on December 1 away, then Spain awaits in Malaga on December 5.

Only twelve nations participate in the Olympics when it comes to soccer on the women’s side. Three of the places go to European teams. So far clear nations are France, Brazil, Colombia, Canada and the United States.

Goalkeepers: Jennifer Falk, Häcken, Emma Holmgren, Levante, Zecira Musovic, Chelsea.

Defender: Jonna Andersson, Hammarby, Nathalie Björn, Everton, Magdalena Eriksson, Bayern Munich, Amanda Ilestedt, Arsenal, Hanna Lundkvist, Atlético Madrid, Amanda Nildén, Juventus, Josefine Rybrink, Häcken, Anna Sandberg, Häcken, Linda Sembrant, Juventus.

Midfielder/striker: Filippa Angeldahl, Manchester City, Anna Anvegård, Häcken, Kosovare Asllani, Milan, Hanna Bennison, Everton, Stina Blackstenius, Arsenal, Lina Hurtig, Arsenal, Sofia Jakobsson, San Diego, Madelen Janogy, Hammarby, Rosa Kafaji, Häcken, Johanna Rytting Kaneryd , Chelsea, Caroline Seger, Rosengård, Matilda Vinberg, Hammarby, Julia Zigiotti Olme, Brighton.

Remaining matches, December 1: Switzerland-Sweden, Spain-Italy. December 5: Spain–Sweden, Italy–Switzerland.

The table: Spain 12 points, Sweden 7, Italy 4, Switzerland 0.

The prerequisites: For Sweden to be able to win the group, and keep the hope of the Olympics, victory against Switzerland is an absolute must to begin with.

If Spain defeats Italy at the same time, Blågult’s Olympic chance disappears anyway.

If Spain plays a draw instead, hope lives on, but then Sweden must win by at least two goals in the last match to pass the Spaniards, who then end up on the same score (Spain won 3–2 in Gothenburg).

The best thing is if Spain loses against Italy. Then a Swedish victory in the final against the world champions in Málaga is enough.
