Magdalena Eriksson was injured in the Olympic rematch against Australia in mid-June, but appeared to be fully recovered.

Federation captain Peter Gerhardsson said as recently as yesterday that all players were available for games.

"All players in the squad are healthy and have fully trained the last training sessions before today's match. But we make the assessment that Magdalena needs a couple of additional days of full training with the team to be able to step in and perform one hundred percent in this tough match that awaits in the Olympics ", says national team doctor Mats Börjesson to the Swedish Football Association's website.
