The Boston Breakers announced the signing of Swedish midfielder Louise Schillgard.

Schillgard played for current Breakers head coach Matt Beard at Liverpool where she tallied nine goals in 14 matches.

“Louise is one of the best players I have ever worked with. She has a great soccer brain, she’s a dead ball specialist, and she can score and create goals,” Beard said. “I’m delighted we have managed to bring someone of Louise’s quality to Boston. The way she is as a player I’m confident she will be a hit in the NWSL.”
