Before the match Sweden-Finland Seger, captain of the team and client of LTA Agency, used the ‘domino’ metaphor to describe the strategy of her team for the upcoming game: “When the front line starts to press, it’s easier for us midfielders to follow. It’s a domino effect.” Obviously this was just the right approach, as it resulted in a score resembling a domino effect itself.
One goal was following after the other last night at Gamla Ullevi. First Fischer scored assisted by Hammarström. This raised the spirits of the Swedish girls and in the 36th minute followed another goal, again by Fischer. The next domino was knocked down only two minutes later with Asllani’s goal, assisted brilliantly by Sofia Jakobsson. The second half was just as eventful as the first one. After the fourth goal for Sweden scored by Schelin in the 60th minute, the excitement of Pia Sundhage’s girls bursted out in a surprising but well synchronized dance. But there was more to come: Schelin scored a beautiful 5th goal for Sweden in the 87th minute. The dynamic and energetic cascade of dominoes left Finland heavily defeated. Meanwhile Caroline Seger and Sweden are celebrating the biggest ever win in a EURO final tournament.
