Club career

Eriksson began her football career with local team Enskede IK, but was encouraged by her father to join Hammarby IF DFF in order to improve her game. Aged 17, she broke into Hammarby's first team in the 2011 Damallsvenskan season and made her debut against Umeå IK.[5]

In November 2011, Eriksson left relegated Hammarby for their Stockholm rivals Djurgården.[6] After scoring one goal in 19 appearances in the 2012 Damallsvenskan, she left Djurgårdens, who were facing relegation, for Linköpings FC.[7]

In July 2017, after almost 5 years with Linköpings FC, she signed a two-year contract with Women's Super League team Chelsea Ladies.[8][9]

International career

As a Swedish under-19 international, Eriksson was part of the victorious squad at the 2012 U-19 European Championship.[10] In November 2013, national team coach Pia Sundhage called up Eriksson to a senior squad training camp at Bosön.[11] Eriksson made her debut for the senior Sweden team in a 3–0 friendly defeat by France in Amiens on 8 February 2014. In early 2014, she had a knee injury after colliding with her own goalkeeper, which left her injured for three months.[4] She was part of the Swedish squad that won silver at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[2] In July 2017, Pia Sundhage named Eriksson to Sweden's UEFA Women's Euro 2017 squad.

Personal life

As a young player at Hammarby, Eriksson's pre-match ritual included listening to "Heroes" (David Bowie song).[5] Eriksson is in a relationship with former Linköpings FC teammate and Danish international, Pernille Harder.[12]

During her upbringing, she assumed her last name was spelled with a C because that was how her father spelled it. It wasn't until she was 17 and looked in her passport that she realised it was actually spelled with a K. As such, her last name is often misspelled as "Ericsson" rather than the correct "Eriksson".[13]

Patients with hypokinetic disorders like Parkinson's disease experience muscle rigidity and an inability to produce movement. It is also associated with mental health disorders and prolonged inactivity due to illness, amongst other diseases.

The other category of movement disorder resulting from damage to the basal ganglia, hyperkinesia, features an exaggeration of unwanted motion, like twitching or writhing in Huntington's disease or Tourette syndrome.
