Sweden participated in a mini-tournament featuring four teams vying for a spot in the summer Olympics in Rio.

They toppled Norway and Switzerland in their first two winning games and faced Netherlands in a nail-biting performance in the final Olympics Qualifier match.

LTA Players, Seger, Sempan, and Hedvig played 90 min, Olivia started and Emma came in as a sub in the second half. The final match against Netherlands proved to be a struggle but the team managed to equalize when Schough capitalized on the defensive’s mistake to score in the first half of the game. The match ended in a tough 1-1 draw but the crucial point was enough for Sweden to qualify for the summer Olympics.

Sweden will join France and Germany in the summer Olympics, taking the final spot at the 12 team competition. They continue to maintain their tradition of participating in every Women’s Olympic Football Tournament since the competition was created in 1996.

Line Røddik Hansen has signed a contract with French giants – Olympique Lyonnais. The contract is until June 2017.

Line has joined the 9-time defending French Champions from FC Rosengård (Malmö), with whom she won the Damallsvenskan (Swedish Top League) twice, and the Swedish Super Cup. She has also won Damallsvenskan with another major outfit Tyresö FF and played in 2014 UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Lisbon.

The Danish international earned bronze medal with Denmark at the 2013 UEFA Women’s European Championships in Sweden, and she has been captaining her country ever since. She has earned 104 caps and scored 13 goals for Denmark national team so far.

Line, who plays mostly as a left back or a left-footed center back, will wear shirt number 4 in Lyon.

The 23-year-old Cameroonian international, Ajara Nchout Njoya has signed a contract with Sundsvall DFF in Swedish Elitettan.

Coming from Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League in the USA, Ajara had an eventful 2015 marked by the debut participation of her national team in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. Ajara featured in all 4 matches at the World Cup scoring against then-defending-champions Japan, and helping Cameroon to qualify for the round of 16 of the competition where they narrowly lost to China.

Prior to the US, Ajara played in top Russian clubs reaching quarterfinals of the 2012-2013 UEFA Women’s Champions League with FC Rossiyanka.
Quick and technical forward, Ajara will look to fulfill her true potential in Sweden as she intends to follow in the footsteps of her international teammate Gaelle Enganamouit who is currently on the books of Swedish champions – FC Rosengård.

Raquel Infante signed with Åland United in Finland. The 25-year-old central defender played in Italian Serie A last season with San Zaccaria before joining Benfica and playing 2015-2016 UEFA Women’s Champions League qualifiers last autumn.

The tall central back has earned 12 caps with Portugal National team. She has arrived in Mariehamn yesterday to join her new teammates for the pre-season training.
With Raquel in the squad, Åland will try to improve their defense, which conceded 33 goals last season, finishing 3rd in the Finnish top flight.

LTA Agency are pleased to announce appointing a new representative in France – Charly Mendo.

Based in the larger Paris area, Charly has been keenly interested in women’s football for the last ten years. Apart from regularly attending hundreds of matches, he has also been actively involved in coaching a third division women’s team in France. He is young, ambitious and passionate about developing new talents and improving the situation of established players in women’s football. Charly speaks several languages including French, Portuguese, Spanish, and English.

Gaelle Enganamouit became the first ever Cameroonian to win Glo-CAF African Women’s Player of the Year Award for 2015.

The prestigious award ceremony held in the Nigerian capital Abuja, marked the end of a great year for African football and featured a number of recognized international stars of past and present including Jay Jay Okocha, Yaya Toure, and the newly crowned African male player of the year – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The award caps a fantastic year for Gaelle, who was the most dominant African player both for her club and country as she led Cameroon to the round of 16 at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. She also became the 2015 best goalscorer of the Swedish top League – Damallsvenskan, helping unfancied Eskilstuna United to second place in the League and automatic qualification to the UEFA Women’s Champions League and earning herself a move to the powerhouse and current Swedish Champions – FC Rosengård in search of Champions League glory.

Gaelle’s Cameroon international teammate, Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene, also represented by LTA, made the final short list of 3 best players in Africa for 2015.

The 20-year old Cameroonian international midfielder Raissa Feudjio signed a contract with a top Finnish outfit Åland United.
Raissa spent last season with another club from Finland Merilappi United, which will make her adaptation easier this time. The young talent has already earned 45 caps with the Cameroon National Team, and has taken part in a number of high level international events including this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, 2012 Olympic Games in London, and a few CAF African Women Championships.

Raissa will join her new club for their pre-season training camp in February. Despite her young age Raissa is a very skillful, intelligent, and experienced player. She will surely increase the stability in the center of Åland’s midfield and will help increase the team’s ball possession percentage as they aim to win 2016 Finland’s women’s premier league – Naisten Liiga.

LTA Agency wish a very good season to Raissa and her new club and good luck.

The Cameroonian striker Gaelle Enganamouit, Cote D’Ivoire’s forward Ines N’Rehy and the Cameroon winger Aboudi Onguene, have all been nominated for CAF Best African Women Player of the Year 2015 Award.

Vero with bayern

Vero joined her new club last summer from 1. FFC Frankfurt with whom she won one of the most prestigious awards in women’s club football – UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Vero came on as a sub in the 71st minute of the game, when the result was 0:3 to Bayern and recorded 20 minutes of action. The match finished 0:5, and after the match Vero was very happy that she played a few minutes after a long time out of competition. Following such a long injury, it’s extremely important to carefully manage her match fitness levels and playing time.
