Clubs: IFK Göteborg, AZ Alkmaar, PFC CSKA Moskva
• Joined IFK Göteborg in 2004 and made his debut the following year, scoring his first Allsvenskan goal on the final day of the season in a 4-2 win over Landskrona BoIS; became a first-team regular in 2006, replacing club legend Håkan Mild, while also establishing himself in the Swedish Under-21 side.
• Won the Allsvenskan in 2007, scoring six goals, the last of them in a final-day 2-0 win against Trelleborgs FF that saw the team home by a point from Kalmar FF; a Swedish Cup runner-up to Kalmar in 2007, he helped Göteborg turn the tables on the same opponents with a penalty shoot-out win in the 2008 final.
• Represented Sweden at the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, starting three matches, before leaving Göteborg to join Dutch champions AZ Alkmaar, with whom he made his first appearances in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
• Although first capped at senior level in January 2007, he did not become regularly involved until his move to the Netherlands; a fine second season with AZ earned him a starting berth for his country in the first few UEFA EURO 2012 qualifiers, although by the end of the campaign he had been demoted to a substitute's role.
• Left AZ midway through the 2011/12 season to join CSKA for €3m and enjoyed a sensational debut when he scored a last-gasp equaliser to secure a 1-1 home draw with Real Madrid CF in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
• Made just one substitute appearance at UEFA EURO 2012, in the 2-0 win against France, before enjoying a superb season with CSKA, winning a league and cup double, though he was dismissed in the cup final win against FC Anji Makhachkala.
