The Swedish Women’s National Team closed out their European Championship qualification campaign with a 6-0 win against Slovakia.
Kosovare Asllani played the full ninety minutes and took the majority of the set-pieces that caused Slovakia a lot of problems. One Asllani corner yielded a penalty kick that was missed by Caroline Seger.
All three first half goals stemmed from further Asllani set-pieces which were not properly cleared. Sweden would score three more goals in the second half. Two came from Asllani free-kicks that bounced around in the box before being hit into the back of the net by the Swedes.
Overall, Asllani had a good performance. She operated between the lines and looked dangerous in space, though her final ball left a bit to be desired as she spurned a few good chances to assist and score.
Sofia Jakobsson came on in the 63rd minute. She put in one of her best performances of the year for club and country. Jakobsson played on the right wing and was very involved. She dribbled at players, drifted inside, and was always on the front foot.
