Club careerEdit

After joining from Tölö IF, Rolfö scored nine league goals for Jitex BK in her debut Damallsvenskan season, 2011. Her favoured position was on the right wing, so she could cut inside and shoot with her strong left foot.[4]

Rolfö signed for Linköpings FC in 2014 and scored a hat-trick on her UEFA Women's Champions League debut against English champions Liverpool.[5] In November 2016, FC Bayern Munich announced that they had signed Rolfö to an 18-month contract, starting from 1 January 2017.[6]

International careerEdit

Rolfö's club form with Linköpings caught the eye of national team coach Pia Sundhage, who promptly handed Rolfö a debut cap in Sweden's 2–1 friendly defeat by Germany at Behrn Arena on 29 October 2014. In her five-minute substitute appearance she almost scored but was denied by German goalkeeper Nadine Angerer.[7]

She was previously an under-19 international.[8]
