Recalled to the Sweden set-up for UEFA EURO 2012 after a two-and-a-half-year absence, Markus Rosenberg seized his chance with a glut of goals for SV Werder Bremen in the closing weeks of the 2011/12 Bundesliga season. A confident marksman, he was in Sweden's squad for UEFA EURO 2008 and the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
• Started his career with home-town Malmö FF but became a household name in Sweden during the 2004 season when sent on loan to Halmstads BK; although Malmö won the title, he scored 14 goals as Halmstad pushed them hard and finished a close second.
• Returned to Malmö in 2005 but after half a season joined AFC Ajax, scoring 12 goals in his debut Eredivisie campaign and winning the Dutch Cup.
• Lost his place at Ajax the following season to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and moved in January 2007 to Bremen, where he scored 22 Bundesliga goals in his first 18 months.
• Found the net on his debut for Sweden – a 1-1 draw against South Korea in Los Angeles on 22 January 2005 – and also in his first competitive encounter, a UEFA EURO 2008 qualifier against Liechtenstein, but he was unused at the 2006 World Cup and managed only two substitute outings at UEFA EURO 2008.
• Lost his place at Bremen in 2009/10 and spent the following season on loan to Spain's Real Racing Club, scoring nine goals in 33 outings; returned to Bremen in 2011/12 and scored ten goals, including five in his last seven Bundesliga games.
