One of the best Swedish defenders. Nilsson was very consistent left back, due to his impressive physique he was a nightmare of his opponents, some teams even threatened to Malmo they will not play friendly games against them if Nilsson will be on the pitch. He was real captaind and leader, with good positioning and tactical awareness but also decent ball control. He was part of Olympic gold in 1948 in London, World Championship bronze in 1950 and Olympic bronze in Helsinki 1952nd In total there was 57 caps 600 matches for Malmö FF. Erik is seen as butter of many journalists. After an international match in Stockholm, he was asked what he thought about the game? "Have you no self-perception as" he shouted in reply. He is probably one of the oldest players to get professional bids. When Milan played in Malmö, he offered to come to Italy. But when they heard how old Erik Nilsson was 34 years old, they drop out. At the Olympic Games in 1948, he was able to celebrate the greatest international triumph, as in the finals with a 3-1 - victory over Yugoslavia succeeded to the Olympic gold medal. Two years later he reached with the national team to third place in the World Cup 1950th At the Olympic Games in Helsinki in 1952 was again won the bronze medal, as the German team in the match for third place was defeated 2-0. In 1950 he was awarded the Guldbollen as the best Swedish footballer of the year, recorded in 2003 in the SFS Hall Of Fame. Erik Nilsson died in September 1995. He was 79 years old.
