Between winning a championship in the United States and lifting the Champions League with Lyon, Sweden’s national team captain Caroline Seger has played with some incredible players since her career began in 2004.
When she spoke to Barometern about Hanna Bennison then, one statement carried some weight: “I have probably never seen such a great talent.”
Bennison has been showcasing that talent at senior level ever since her debut for Rosengard as a 15-year-old, becoming a regular in midfield the following year as the club won the Damallsvenskan title.
With wonderful technique,physicality and an eye for goal, Bennison’s performances were rewarded with a senior Swedencap in November 2019 against the world champions, the United States.
The milestones have only kept coming for the 18-year-old, who scored her first Champions League goal in December with an emphatic finish into the top corner against Lanchkhuti.
After what had been a difficult year, with injury limiting her to only five starts 2020, it was a reminder of why Bennison is so deserving of being recognised as the best young talent in the world.
