Lindahl to the rescue

LINDAHL TO THE RESCUE

Sweden are still alive at the FIFA Women's World Cup, and that's thanks to their extraordinary goalkeeper

With her team leading 1-0, she showed extraordinary ability to save Janine Beckie's penalty and lead Sweden to the quarter-finals.

Sometimes you are very close and you don't make it. But I did make it this time. It is all happiness for me

Her performance was certainly recognised by the fans: she was named the Visa Player of the Match.
