Henrik Larsson

Club: Celtic
Position: Forward


Such is Henrik Larsson's importance to the Swedish national side that many believe they would not have qualified if he had not been playing.

The striker is also a folk hero for Celtic, where his goals helped the Scottish giants recapture the championship.

Larsson was also part of the Celtic team that earlier in the 2001/2002 season performed heroics in the Champions League.

His main attributes are good pace and the ability to turn and shoot in tight areas.
