Joachim Bjorklund



Joachim Bjorklund
The usual defensive partner for Andersson, Bjorklund is a tough-tackling, uncompromising defender whose play has progressed since joining Spanish side Valencia.

Possesses sufficient versatility to play at full-back instead of his preferred central position if required, but what he contributes most to the Swedish defence is pace.

He is remarkably quick for a central defender and is renowned for making decisive last ditch tackles against runaway forwards.

But such attributes come with a trade-off and Bjorklund often fails to assert himself in the air.

He has played 70 times alongside defensive partner Patrik Andersson since a debut in 1992 against Australia.

A varied club career has seen him play for a range of teams including Glasgow Rangers and AC Milan.
