MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Christen Presshas joined Swedish champion Tyreso from FC Gothenburg, the club for which she scored 17 league goals, second in the Damallsvenskan, and 25 goals in all competitions in 2012.

Tyreso won the Damallsvenskan on the final day of the 2012 season with a 1-0 win at LdB Malmo, which went into the game with the league lead.

Tyreso features Brazilian superstar Marta and Spaniard Veronica Boquete, who starred for the Philadelphia Independence in WPS. It also includes Meghan Klingenberg, who like Press was an alternate on the 2012 U.S. Olympic women's team.

Press, who starred at Stanford, where she is the all-time leading scorer, was the 2011 WPS Rookie of the Year with magicJack.

Tyreso also signed Malin Diaz, who scored the winning goal for Sweden in the UEFA Women's Under-19 final against Spain, from AIK.

FC Gothenburg was fourth in the Damallsvenskan but won the Swedish Cup with a 2-1 win over Tyreso in the final.
