Eva Sofia Jakobsson (born 23 April 1990) is a Swedish footballer who plays for CD Tacón of the Spanish Primera División. She made her debut for the Sweden women's national football team in 2011 and won her 100th cap in 2019. Jakobsson represented her country in the 2013 edition of the UEFA Women's Championship, as well as at the 2011, 2015 and 2019 FIFA Women's World Cups. She also played at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Football Tournaments.

Club career[edit]

After playing one season in the second tier for Östers IF, Jakobsson signed in 2007, at 17, for national champion Umeå IK. In her five seasons in Umeå she won two championships and one national cup, and she made her UEFA Women's Cup debut. After Umeå lost its dominant position in the Damallsvenskan since 2009, Jakobsson transferred to Russian champion WFC Rossiyanka to again play the UEFA Women's Champions League.[4]

Jakobsson signed for Chelsea Ladies in January 2013.[5] She scored on her debut in a 1–1 draw with Birmingham,[6] and then scored a brace in her next game against Doncaster Rovers Belles.[7] She scored in her third consecutive Women's Super League game in a 2–1 win over the Liverpool Ladies.[8] She scored 2 more goals in the remaining 8 games, ending as Chelsea's top scorer along with Eniola Aluko.[9]

With three WSL games remaining until the end of the season she moved to the German Bundesliga alongside team mate Ester, signing for newly promoted team BV Cloppenburg.[10][11] In July 2014, Jakobsson signed for Montpellier HSC of the French Division 1 Féminine.[12] In July 2019, Jakobsson joined CD Tacón of the Spanish Primera División, along with her national teammate, Kosovare Asllani.[13]

International career[edit]

Jakobsson made her debut for the Swedish national team in 2011. She has represented Sweden in three World Cups (Germany 2011, Canada 2015, France 2019) and two Olympic Games (London 2012, Rio 2016.) Her squad finished in third place in two of those World Cups (2011 and 2019), and won a Silver Medal in Rio. She also appeared at the 2013 European Championship. Jakobsson was the top scorer of the 2015 Algarve Cup, netting four times for Sweden.

Jakobsson suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in January 2017 while training with her French club. She was ruled out of Sweden's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2017.[14]

In April 2019 Jakobsson won her 100th cap, marking the occasion with a goal in Sweden's 2–0 friendly win over Austria in Maria Enzersdorf.[15]

In the Quarter-Final of the 2019 Women's World Cup, Jakobsson scored a game-tying goal within ten minutes of Germany taking an early lead. Sweden would go on to win the match, posting their first victory over the Germans in a major tournament since the 1995 World Cup.[16][17] She also tallied what proved to be the winning goal in the 3rd Place Match of that tournament, scoring in the 22nd minute against England.[18]
