Swedish Soccer’s Players of the Year

Published tisdag 14 november 2006 kl 11.25
Fredrik Ljungberg and Lotta Schelin

The annual Swedish soccer player of the year awards were presented in Stockholm Monday.

Arsenal midfielder Fredrik Ljungberg received the Golden Ball award for the second time, after winning it in 2002. He was honored for helping Sweden advance to the second round in this summer’s World Cup by scoring the winning goal against Paraguay in group play, and as also a leading figure when Arsenal reached the Champions League final.

Lotta Schelin won the Diamond Ball as the women’s player of the year. The Gothenburg forward scored half her team’s goals this season, and 5 goals in 12 matches for the national team.

Meanwhile, former Sweden goalkeeper Magnus Hedman has come out of retirement to play for English Premier League champions Chelsea. The 33 year old is being brought in to play during training sessions as the second back-up goalie, after Chelsea’s starting goalkeeper suffered a long-term injury.
