In 1990, Malmö FF became Swedish champions, winning the league and cup. The women's team was formed in 1971 and had only won the league once prior, in 1986. The squad was invited by the Australian Women's Soccer Association to play a series of friendly matches in Sydney and Canberra.
Malmö star player, Lena Videkull, made the trip. Videkull, a two-time Player of the Year, had scored 21 goals to finish her successful season with the Swedish champions as the league's top goal scorer. Malmö ended the season on a 19-match win streak.
Australia's Sharon Young made her international debut. The 24-year-old defender had already represented her country in indoor soccer.
The three matches against Malmö were organised to assist the Australian women's team in their preparations for the FIFA World Cup. Australia would face New Zealand and Papua New Guinea in May for the right to represent Oceania in the first World Cup for women in China. Australia scored 21 goals and conceded just one across four matches to qualify.
This design marks a significant time in Australian women's soccer, where ambition met with talent resulted in opportunity. The women's game has grown ever since.
