INFO:

Larsson began his career with Högaborgs BK as a youth player. As a senior, he moved to Helsingborg, where he was one of the key players when they qualified to Allsvenskan 1993. Larsson then moved to Feyenoord for four years before leaving for Celtic in 1997. He won four league titles in seven years with Celtic, scoring 242 goals in 315 competitive matches, before moving to Barcelona in 2004, where he won two league titles and the 2006 Champions League, in which he assisted both of Barcelona's goals as they won 2–1 against Arsenal. Following the expiration of his contract at Barcelona, Larsson returned to his hometown club of Helsingborg, and joined Manchester United on a brief loan spell between January and March 2007. He announced his retirement from football on 20 October 2009.

Larsson played for Sweden in three World Cups and three European Championships and is a former captain of the national team. Larsson ended his international career with 37 goals in 106 matches. Larsson scored 37 goals in 104 games for Sweden. He scored his first international goal in his debut, during the World Cup Qualifications stage against Finland. His first World Cup goal came at the USA 1994 against Bulgaria in the third place match to help Sweden win the bronze. Sweden did not qualify to the 1998 World Cup, but reappeared on the global stage four years later at the 2002 World Cup. Larsson helped guide Sweden out of the group of death and into the knockout round with a 2–1 win over Nigeria in which he scored both goals. He then scored in the round of sixteen match against Senegal, though Sweden ended up losing 1–2 in extra time to a golden goal and were eliminated.


Henrik Larsson in Euro 2004.

Larsson originally chose to retire from International football after that World Cup. His decision was met with dismay in Sweden and there was much clamoring for him to return to the team for their campaign at Euro 2004 in Portugal).[34] Despite initially maintaining his decision to retire, he eventually returned to the national side, scoring three goals in four matches and leading Sweden to the quarter-finals, where they were defeated in a penalty shootout by the Dutch. Larsson's diving header against Bulgaria was voted best goal of the 2004 European Championships[citation needed]. Larsson also featured at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. He scored in the final minute of the match against England for Sweden to draw the match 2–2 in their final game in the group stages, becoming the sixth player to score in three World Cup finals. The goal also sealed Sweden's qualification for the second round of the tournament. In Sweden's second round game against host Germany, he missed a penalty and Sweden went out with the score at 2–0 to Germany. He retired from international football for the second time on 17 July 2006.[35] "It is time to quit now. It feels right. I'm done with the national team," the 34-year-old Larsson told TV station Canal Plus. However, Sweden boss Lars Lagerbäck managed to lure Larsson out of international retirement once more and on 13 May 2008, the Swedish FA officially declared that Larsson had agreed to make a comeback and play for Sweden once again at Euro 2008. Following former team captain Fredrik Ljungberg's decision to quit the national side after the tournament, Larsson was chosen to become the new captain in a friendly against France on 20 August. He played his 100th game for Sweden in a 0-0 draw with Albania on 6 September. On 11 October 2009, Larsson once again decided to retire from the national team.
