There has been extremely turbulence around the Spanish national team after the first World Cup gold on the women's side, something that was started at the award ceremony when the president of the federation, Luis Rubiales, kissed Jennifer Hermoso against her will.

"I have great respect for the players and all credit to them for taking this fight with everything they have been through, to even have to threaten not to show up to a national team camp shows quite clearly what goes on behind the scenes," says Nathalie Björn.

The conflict has been brewing for several years and last year 15 players boycotted the national team, then in conflict with coach Jorge Vilda.

"They had problems even before the World Cup, but afterwards there has been too much focus on things around them when you instead want to look at the performance that they have become world champions," Björn reflects.

"Inspiring other nations to take this fight"

What signals does this fight send?

"It shows to many nations, large and small, that it is possible to bring about a change and that equality can be achieved. We women show that we are not silent anymore but take what we want. It also inspires other nations to take this fight.

The Swedish players are relieved that there will be a game on Friday.

"They are extremely positive that they have found a solution and that they are united, at the same time a lot is happening around Spain and then it is extra important that we focus on our task," says goalkeeper Zecira Musovic.

She is delighted with the solidarity that has emerged from the Spanish struggle.

"It's really important and they've been at the forefront of issues that are important for countries outside their own federation, yes the whole football world that has supported this.

The Chelsea goalkeeper believes in an even better Spain after the conflict.

"I think they have come out of this stronger, it's a united squad and they know what they want.
