Who is Lina Hurtig? What is her nationality?

Lina Hurtig, the renowned Swedish soccer player, hails from the town of Avesta in Sweden.

However, beyond her impressive career, she has chosen to keep her personal life quite private, and details about her family, including the names of her parents and any potential siblings, remain undisclosed.

Regarding her nationality, Hurtig proudly identifies as Swedish, while her ethnic background is Caucasian.

As for her educational journey and academic accomplishments, specific information about these aspects remains unknown, adding an air of mystery to her already captivating persona.

Is Lina Hurtig married? Who is her partner?

Lina Hurtig, the celebrated soccer star, is known not only for her sporting prowess but also for being open about her love life, particularly her relationship with Lisa Lantz.

Lisa Lantz, like Lina, is a professional soccer player. Lisa has had a successful career, having played for other teams like Sundsvalls DFF, Bälinge IF, Umeå Södra FF, and Umeå IK.

The couple’s love story blossomed, and they decided to take their relationship to the next level by getting married on August 16, 2019.

Despite an eight-year age difference, their love for each other knows no bounds.

They first met in 2017, likely around the time when Lina joined the team, and since then, they have achieved remarkable milestones together, including winning the 2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Coming out as a couple garnered immense support from their fans, which pleasantly surprised Lisa.

Initially, the couple did not plan to have children so early into their marriage.

However, in March, they announced that they were expecting their first child. Lina shared the delightful news on social media, giving their fans a glimpse into their happiness.

In June 2021, they welcomed their precious baby girl, marking a new chapter in their love-filled journey.

Pride Month and Being role models

In the LGBTQ+ community, it is essential to have a role model in their lives.

Considered different by the people is already a daunting task to deal with, and they have no support or role model to make it even harder.

In an interview with Vavel, the couple expressed their opinion about having a role model and being one at that.

Lina was the first to respond,

“I don’t see myself as a role model. I have a hard time even see it like we’re standing up for something since I don’t think about it that way. We are just being ourselves and it feels weird to be a role model just by being myself.”

Following this was the reply from Lisa. And she states,

“A role model for me is every single person that dares to be themselves and live their lives as they want. I admire people who do just that. That’s a true role model for me and if I am a role model, that’s how I want us to be looked at.”

Despite thinking they are no role model material, we can be sure that many youths, especially players, look them up as their role models.

Professional Life

Lina Hurtig’s journey in professional soccer began at an early age, as she stepped onto the field at just 15 years old.

In 2011, she showcased her talent playing for Gustafs GoIF in the Norrettan league, impressively scoring 14 goals and providing four assists in 20 games.

Her remarkable performances caught the attention of top-tier clubs, and both LdB FC Malmo and Umea IK sought to recruit her.

Ultimately, she joined Umea IK for a brief training stint before officially playing for the team for four years, from 2012 to 2016.

In pursuit of new challenges, Lina then made a transfer to the league champions, Linkopings FC, signing a two-year contract.

Wearing her iconic number 9 jersey, she has been an influential midfielder for the club while also representing the Swedish national team.

Lina’s national team involvement began in her youth, notably featuring in the 2012 U-19 European Championship.

Her talent didn’t go unnoticed by the senior squad coach, Pia Sundhage, who invited her to a training camp at Boson in December 2012.

Despite being a contender for the UEFA Women’s Euro 2013, Lina narrowly missed making the final selection.

Her skills and game level have earned her praise from various players and coaches alike. Sundhage hailed her as a “potentially world-class player” after a notable performance in the final pre-tournament match against Norway.

In 2019, Lina represented Sweden at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, where she scored her first goal of the tournament in a match against Thailand. Throughout her journey, her wife, Lisa, has been a constant source of support, cheering her on as her biggest fan.

Currently, the couple is working together to elevate their club, Linkopings FC, in the league standings, aiming to build upon their 5th-place finish from the previous season. With Lina’s remarkable talent and dedication, the future looks bright for both her and her team.
