Anna started her career in the hometown club TPS. The fearless and smart goalie has since then kept progressing and developing, and continues her climb towards the top.
We started working with the big talent when she was at HJK Helsinki. In 2019, they won the Finnish League, the Finnish Cup, and qualified for the Champions League. Anna was selected as one of the three best goalies in the league, at only 18 years old.
Anna gained serious international attention during the U17 European Championship in 2018, when Finland took the bronze medal. She kept putting on stellar performances also in the U17 World Cup in Uruguay, proving to be one of the absolute top prospects worldwide in her age and position. Before the 2020 season, UEFA put her on the "Top 10 Talents in Europe" watchlist.
When searching for the next challenge, Sweden felt like the natural way to go. She turned down offers from Bundesliga among others, to wait for the right opportunity. The lucky club to receive her signature was Linköping FC. They inked her on a 3-year contract in December 2020.
