Swedish Defender Sara Larsson

Sweden’s veteran defender has stated that she will be moving to the USA to play for St. Louis Athletica next season. Larsson, a 29 year old international, is a nice acquisition for Athletica. Sweden’s rookie of the year in 2000 went on to become a big part of Sweden’s national team. She was a part of both the 2003 and 2007 World Cup squads, and the 2008 Olympic team. She played a large part of Sweden’s run to the World Cup final in 2003, where they lost in overtime to Germany. She played nearly every minute of the Olympics, where she was subbed off at the 110 minute in their quarterfinal loss to Germany.
