34-year-old Linda Sembrant is a given cog in the national team's back line.

But in this summer's Olympics, Blågult will have to do without the Juventus player when she injured her knee during a training session earlier in May.

Now Sembrant has undergone surgery and on Twitter she shows a picture of herself on crutches and with a large knee splint.

“The operation was done and everything went well.

Now the big match begins.

Thank you for all the support and all the love ", she writes.
