Almgren's career was marred by injuries. In May 2013 she was devastated to be ruled out of UEFA Women's Euro 2013, requiring surgery on her knee for the fifth time.
In November 2014 Almgren was appointed head coach of Elitettan minnows Kungsbacka DFF, with Stina Segerström as her assistant.
During the 2008 Summer Olympics, Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho surprised Almgren by asking her to marry him, just a few hours after seeing her for the first time. She rejected the proposal outright. Almgren thought that her friend was joking with her when she got a phone call from a translator saying Ronaldinho wanted her to go to his room. After realizing it wasn't a joke she and a few friends went up. Then he asked her to marry him; "I said NO because I have a boyfriend (Adam) who is waiting for me at home" - she told newspapers - "I gave Ronaldinho a Sweden soccer T-Shirt but I wasn't brave enough to ask him for a Brazilian one too".
