Magdalena "Magda" Eriksson (also Ericsson, born 8 September 1993) is a Swedish footballer who plays as a defender for the Damallsvenskan club Linköpings FC and the Sweden women's national football team. A left back, she used to play for Hammarby and Djurgården.
Eriksson began her football career with local team Enskede IK, but was encouraged by her father to join Hammarby IF DFF in order to improve her game. Aged 17, she broke into Hammarby's first team in the 2011 Damallsvenskan season and made her debut against Umeå IK.
In November 2011, Eriksson left relegated Hammarby for their Stockholm rivals Djurgårdens. After scoring one goal in 19 appearances in the 2012 Damallsvenskan, she quit Djurgårdens, who were also relegated, for Linköpings FC.
As a Swedish under-19 international, Eriksson was part of the victorious squad at the 2012 U-19 European Championship. In November 2013, national team coach Pia Sundhage called up Eriksson to a senior squad training camp at Bosön. Eriksson made her debut for the senior Sweden team in a 3–0 friendly defeat by France in Amiens on 8 February 2014. In early 2014 she had a knee injury after colliding with her own goalkeeper, which took her three months to recover. She was part of the Swedish team that won the silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
As a young player at Hammarby, Eriksson's pre-match ritual included listening to "Heroes" (David Bowie song).
