• Ended an unsettled spell in Europe by joining Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal FC, where he became a prominent figure, scoring freely in three seasons before a less successful loan spell at Qatari club Al-Ahli SC in 2011/12.

• Went to a fourth major tourament with Sweden at UEFA EURO 2012, appearing off the bench during all three group games.
