Rolfö before duel with Spain: “They have come far enough now”.

She plays in Spain, has won everything there is to win with FC Barcelona and has been rooting for the Iberians at the World Cup so far: Now Fridolina Rolfö will meet many of her colleagues with Sweden.

Where colleagues is actually an understatement, as she said in an interview with FIFA: “They are really good friends,” the 29-year-old said. “We have a pretty special bond at Barcelona. It’s hard to explain.”

The former Wolfsburg player (2019 to 2021) has been with Barça for two years now, and as many as nine Catalan players are in Spain’s line-up, who will be their opponents in Tuesday’s semi-final. Which is why Rolfö has been rooting for the Spaniards so far. “I’ve been behind Spain in every game,” admitted Rolfö, who actually wants Spain to “get as far as possible in this tournament”. Up to this point, anyway: “I think they’ve got far enough now. “

However, Rolfö knows exactly what a tough task awaits Sweden in the last four: “Spain have outstanding players. And not just three or four like other top teams, but many more,” she praises her opponents. “They love to be in possession, keep the ball flat, let it circle – and they’re really good at that. “

Growing confidence after wins over USA and Japan

But the Swedes feel they are ready to reach a World Cup final for the first time since 2003. After all, they have already bowled out world number one USA ( 5:4 i.E.) and secret favourites Japan (2:1) in the knockout rounds. “That gives us a lot of self-confidence. Now we have to play another outstanding team, but we trust in our strength,” announced Rolfö.
