Rasmus Elm

AZ Alkmaar have enjoyed plenty of success recruiting players from Sweden and Elm is the latest to have thrived at the Dutch club since he was signed from Kalmar FF in the summer of 2009.

He certainly did his apprenticeship in Sweden’s junior national teams, notching up a host of appearances for their under-17, under-19 and under-21 sides before earning his crack at the senior side alongside so many established star name against Austria in February of last year.

From that point on, he began to establish himself as a useful weapon for Sweden coach Erik Hamren and by the end of the Euro 2012 qualifiers, Elm was starting games and staking a claim to play in his first major tournament this summer. “To work with guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kim Kallstrom and Anders Svensson is still a dream to me, but I feel ready to be in the same team with them,” he says.
