Magnus Hedman



Magnus Hedman
Hedman was central to Sweden boasting the best defensive record in the qualifiers with only one goal conceded in eight qualifying games.

Nicknamed 'Mr Bionic', he has developed into one of the most reliable keepers in Europe, his shot-stopping abilities earning considerable plaudits with club side Coventry and the national team.

Seems to possess all round solidity except for the eccentric habit adopted during the qualifiers of standing behind the wall for free-kicks.

After taking over from Thomas Ravenelli, he has amassed 20 caps with his debut coming against Romania in 1997.

Married to a Swedish pop-star, he has the dubious accolade of being half of Sweden's equivalent to Posh 'n' Becks.
