Coleman told Nampa in a telephonic interview on Monday that she has been called up to play trials in the European country.
She stated that she is not yet aware of the team that she might be joining at the moment, but all that she knows is that she must be in Sweden by the 15 July 2015.
Coleman said the call up for trials in a foreign country is another challenge for her, but she will be ready to sign a footballing contract.
“I am ready to go play the trials as I have been training even harder after the championship last year,” she said, adding that training with men helps her boost her football skills.
Coleman, who is based in Keetmanshop, said she trains with the Southern Stream First Division (SSFD) team Try Again Football Club (FC) in her home town.
The 21 year-old footballer said leaving her family behind will however be hard, although she will be doing the right thing for her country and family by being exposed to foreign football.
