Henrik Larsson’s Sixth Championship / La tornada d’en Larsson

Fans of Henrik Larsson will be delighted to hear that the former player of FC Barcelona (and more recently, although temporarily, also of Manchester United) has accepted to play for Sweden in the Euro 2008 of this summer.

Sweden manager Lars Lagerbäck has had an obvious preference for senior players – the average age of the Sweden national football team is 29,35 years this time – however, 36-year-old Larsson will be in a class of his own.

As a Swede, I hope that experience will bring us success during the coming games. What the high average age says about the future of Swedish football is an question which I am happy to pass on to more knowledgeable people.

L’entrenador de la selecció sueca, el Lars Lagerbäck, va confirmar que el Larsson va acceptar de participar en el campionat europeu de futbol. Serà el seu sisè gran campionat. Amb 36 anys, el Larsson serà el major de tots els jugadors suecs si no de tot l’Euro Copa 2008.
