Samuel Holmén

After making his name with Elfsborg and Brondby, Holmen moved to Turkish football in 2010 and his form this season enabled him to pick up one of the final squad places in Sweden’s Euro 2012 party.


He enjoyed far more favourable treatment during Lars Lagerback’s tenure as manager, where he was often a starter in a formation that made use of his defensive midfield qualities. New coach Erik Hamren prefers to employ more ambitious performers in his midfield, so Holmen has seen less international action of late.


A hard worker, his ability to cover every blade of grass on the field makes him a useful option to have on the bench if Sweden are looking to seal up a game late in proceedings.
