Lucky Draw for Women’s Soccer Team

Sweden’s women’s soccer team received a favourable draw for the Beijing Olympics tournament.

The Swedish players had feared a nightmare line-up but Sweden was drawn against China, Argentina and Canada - matches that Swedish captain Victoria Svensson thinks are manageable.  She told news agency TT, that from the team’s point of view, the results were positive.

The draw was conducted by the world governing body of soccer, FIFA.  The women’s tournament opens on August 6, ahead of the official start of the Olympics.
