Jonna Andersson (born 2 January 1993) is a Swedish football defender who plays for English club Chelsea and the Sweden women's national football team.

Club career[edit]

Andersson signed for Linköpings FC in 2009 and made two league appearances in her first season as the club won the Damallsvenskan title. After three seasons where she was mainly a substitute, in the 2013 season she became an important starting player on the team.[1]

International career[edit]

As a Sweden under-19 international Andersson featured at the 2012 UEFA Women's U-19 Championship in Turkey.[2] Sweden won the tournament by beating Spain 1–0 in the final after extra time.[3]

National team coach Pia Sundhage called up Andersson for the first time in January 2016 for a friendly against Scotland, as a replacement for Amanda Ilestedt who had a back injury. She played at left-back as the Scots were drubbed 6–0 at Prioritet Serneke Arena.[4] Andersson retained her place in the squad for the 2016 UEFA Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament.[5]
