EMIL FORSBERG (Swe­den)

Inside Sport - - World Cup 2018 -

From a small Swedish town that’s fur­ther north than Stock­holm, Helsinki or Oslo, Forsberg is a third-gen­er­a­tion foot­ball pro. When his ca­reer took him to Ger­many’s sec­ond di­vi­sion and lit­tle­known RB Leipzig, the folks back home had ques­tions. In­stead, the 26-yearold mid­fielder’s pro­file rose with the up­start team, and Forsberg is now the tar­get of clubs such as Ar­se­nal.
