Lina Mona Andréa Hurtig (born 5 September 1995) is a Swedish footballer who plays as a forward for Damallsvenskan club Linköpings FC. She is a member of the Swedish national team.

Club career[edit]

After turning 15, Hurtig, who is from Avesta, played the 2011 season in Norrettan with Gustafs GoIF.[2] She scored 14 goals and made four assists in 20 games.[3] At the end of that campaign she was approached by Damallsvenskan clubs LdB FC Malmö and Umeå IK. She joined the latter after a short training spell.[4]

Upon Umeå's relegation following the 2016 season, Hurtig transferred to league champions Linköpings FC on a two-year contract.[5]

International career[edit]

As a Swedish under-19 international, Hurtig was featured at the 2012 U-19 European Championship. She started the victorious Swedish team's 1–0 extra time win over Spain in the final.

In December 2012, national team coach Pia Sundhage called up Hurtig to a senior squad training camp at Bosön.[6] Hurtig was also named in the senior squad for a 1–1 friendly draw with Brazil on 19 June 2013.[7] She was hopeful of making the hosts' final squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013, but was not selected.

After leaving Hurtig out of the final pre-tournament friendly against Norway in May 2013, Sundhage described her as a potentially world class player.[8]

Hurtig won her first senior cap as a substitute in a 1–1 draw with Canada in November 2014.[9]

Hurtig was selected in the Sweden squad that travelled to France for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. She scored her first goal the tournament in a 5-1 win against Thailand.[10]
