International careerEdit

Hansson made her senior Sweden debut in the 1984 European Competition for Women's Football final first–leg against England at Ullevi on 12 May 1984.[2] Sweden won the trophy in a penalty shootout at Kenilworth Road after a 1–1 aggregate draw.

Hansson's first international goal came in her second appearance, against rivals Norway; in a 2–2 friendly draw at Åråsen Stadion on 5 September 1984.[3] At the 1988 FIFA Women's Invitation Tournament in Guangdong she was part of the Swedish squad who finished runners–up to Norway.

In 1991 Hansson helped Sweden to a third-place finish at the inaugural FIFA Women's World Cup in Guangdong, China. Playing as a sweeper, she featured in four of the team's six matches.[4] In the first game against the United States, Hansson sent a second half penalty kick wide with the Swedes 3–0 down. They ultimately lost the match 3–2.
