Anna Anvegård

Anna Elin Astrid Anvegård (born 10 May 1997) is a Swedish footballer who plays as a forward for Växjö DFF and the Sweden women's national football team.

Anvegård's prolific goalscoring for Växjö brought her to the attention of Sweden's national team selectors and made her a transfer target for several bigger clubs, in Sweden and beyond. She made her senior national team debut in June 2018, against Croatia, and was praised by coach Peter Gerhardsson for her striking instincts: "She has the classic nose for the target and knows where it is".[2]
