The Swedish football legend has retired


Hedvig Lindahl enough said. The veteran Swedish goalkeeper ended a brilliant football career that lasted until he was 41 years old, after passing through some of the best clubs in Europe: Chelsea, Wolfsburg and Atlético de Madrid. His last team is Elskistuna from Sweden, where he will play his last game this Saturday. “Thank you for giving me an honorable end to a long career, it’s something I will always be grateful for,” he said.

Lindahl believes that is enough: “It is difficult for me to perform at the highest level, my mission is over,” said the goalkeeper with the most international appearances (189) for the Nordic team. “It feels good to end a long football career here, with friends. Because this is where my career really started a long time ago.”

His long and successful career includes, among other things, one silver (2003) and two bronzes in a World Cup (2011 and 2019), as well as two Olympic silvers (2016 and 2020). In 2018 he was named the best goalkeeper in the world. In Sweden he played for Malmö FF, Linköping FC, Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC, Kristianstads DFF and Djurgårdens IF.
