Malin Reuterwall (born 10 December 1990) is a Swedish football goalkeeper for Umeå IK of the Swedish Damallsvenskan. She is a member of the Sweden women's national football team squad.

Club career[edit]

Reuterwall began her career with local club BK30, playing in the first team from the age of 16. In April 2011 Umeå signed Reuterwall, on the recommendation of national team goalkeeper coach Elisabeth Leidinge. She joined Umeå in preference to several other interested clubs, where she became the regular understudy to the experienced Caroline Jönsson.[1][2]

Taking a catch against Tyresö in 2013

Umeå secured Reuterwall's services for another season when she extended her contract with the club in December 2014.[3]

International career[edit]

In September 2013 coach Pia Sundhage gave Reuterwall her first call up to the senior national squad, for a home World Cup qualifying match against Poland.[4] At that point Reuterwall had won eight caps for Sweden at the Under-23 level.[5] Her first experience at international level was gained as Sweden's third-choice goalkeeper at the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.

Reuterwall won her first senior cap in a 1–1 draw with Canada in November 2014.[6]
