Gustafsson came to the German top club SG Flensburg-Handewitt in 2012. He managed to play 50 matches and score 40 goals for Flensburg in the Bundesliga. He was also in the club when the team won the Champions League in 2014. Since then he played two seasons in Aalborg before signing a two-year contract with the Icelandic club Stjarnan in 2016.
Gustafsson has played 22 caps and scored 43 goals for the Icelandic national team.
28-year-old Gustafsson is pairing with the new player of the Danish Women League club Team Esbjerg, Rut Jonsdottir.
