Fitness update on Hurtig, Ilestedt and Walti

Jonas Eidevall expects Lina Hurtig, Amanda Ilestedt and Lia Walti to all be in contention for Sunday’s Barclays Women’s Super League game against Manchester City.

Lina couldn’t travel with Sweden during the October international break, Jonas explained, “because she had an injury that wouldn’t have made it possible for her to play any of the two games. So it didn’t make sense for her to go. But it doesn’t rule her out for for this weekend.

“Amanda did travel but the game on Tuesday came too quick for her. It still doesn’t rule her out for the weekend. That’s why she travelled back. 

Lia Walti came off in the 62nd minute of Switzerland’s UEFA Nations League game against Spain, but thankfully it’s nothing to worry about.

“In the moment, Lia had to go off for Switzerland, but that’s not anything that concerns us long term,” Jonas explained

“Everybody reported back in today, but it was a little bit of an odd FIFA window because the Asian Olympic qualifiers allowed them to play three games. 

“So, they all reported back in later and they landed early this morning, so obviously they couldn’t be on the pitch today. Tomorrow, we hope we can have more players on the pitch.”
