The 25-year-old is thus forced to return a bid for Sweden's European qualifying match away to Latvia on September 3.

"We are suffering with 'Pallo', which has recovered in a fantastic way after last year's injury problems," said Göteborg Sports Manager Lasse Svensson in a statement.

Hammarlund, who was one of the pealers when Peter Gerhardsson took out the European Championship qualifier on Tuesday, has scored eight goals in twelve Damall Swedish matches this season and shares the shooter's lead together with offensive partner Rebecka Blomqvist and Rosengård's Lisa-Marie Utland.
