National team: Sweden

Which player most inspired you and why? Luís Figo

Which coach most inspired you? Patric Jidlefalk

What was the best advice they gave you? He put me at centre-back: I've played there ever since.

Best player you've played with? Nilla Fischer

Toughest opponent? Ramona Bachmann

What are your memories of your first club as a child? When I started playing football at the age of seven, I lived in Denmark, so for three years I played in Solrod. It was a great experience.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Everyone develops at their own pace. Just because you aren't the best now doesn't mean that you can't get there with time.

What was the experience like of playing in a youth final tournament? It's always a great experience to play international games and championships. And to win in extra time against Spain in the 2012 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship final is a memory I will never forget.
