The making of Linnea Liljegärd

We travel to the village of Vargarda to find out where it all began for the Göteborg star.

Now playing UEFA Women's Champions League football for Göteborg FC, Linnea Liljegärd's journey began in the more humble surroundings of Skogsbygdens IF in the small village of Vargarda. We took the Sweden international back to the club as she tells us her memories of winning her first trophies and hear from those that saw her burgeoning talents first hand.
