Åsa Nilla Maria Fischer (born 2 August 1984) is a Swedish footballer for Linköpings FC and the Swedish national team.[5] She was previously the captain of LdB FC Malmö.


Fischer won most of her caps for Sweden as a defensive midfielder after her debut versus Norway in January 2001.[6] Approaching a century of appearances, she was converted to a centre back by coach Pia Sundhage in 2013.[7]

The change in position coincided with an upturn in goalscoring form for Fischer, who scored three times for hosts Sweden at UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[8] Her performances in Sweden's run to the semi-finals prompted a contract offer from European Champions VfL Wolfsburg and Fischer agreed to move to Germany from 1 January 2014.[9] In August 2013 the clubs reached a deal for "grateful" Fischer's immediate transfer.[10] Fischer played the first competitive game for her new side in the Bundesliga 2013-14 season opener against Bayern Munich in front of a home crowd of 8,249 fans on 7 September 2013.

Personal life

In 2013 Fischer gave an interview to QX magazine in which she announced her intention to marry her partner Mariah-Michaela. They married in December 2013.[11]
