The captain of the Swedish soccer team, Nilla Fischer, had to sit out the game, because she had been injured. The midfielder had scored a goal in Sweden's first game against South Africa. Fischer may be able to play again later in the Games, according to Staffan Stjernholm, a media officer with the Swedish Football Association.
"Nilla had an MRI yesterday. It's not a muscle or a tendon injury, rather she's strained her thigh. She could have played, but we don't want to take any chances" Stjernholm tells news agency TT.
