  • Henrik began playing football when he was 6 years old. He started his professional career at the age of 17 he then began playing for Högaborg, but He moved to Helsingborg, where he scored 50 goals in 56 appearances. This sparked the interest of the Dutch club Feyenoord. Who paid Henrik a fee of 295,000 pounds. Henrik Larsson’s position on the field is a Right Midfielder, and a Central Midfielder. Henrik subsequently decided to retire from the Swedish international football in 2006 after scoring 36 goals in 93 appearances for his country.

  • Everyone felt miserable, for they wanted Henrik to return to the team for their campaign at the 2004 European Championships in Portugal. Despite the fact that President LennartJohannsen UEFA and the Swedish Prime Minister have told Larsson that they need him back on the team. Now that the President LennartJohannsen UEFA and the Swedish Prime Minister have said that, Henrik could not refuse. So he eventually returned to his team, scoring 3 goals in three matches, which lead Sweden to the quarterfinals. Sadly, Portugal defeated Sweden in a penalty kick by the Dutch. 

What are 3 questions you would ask the player if you had a chance to interviewthem for TV and why?

  • I would ask him:

  • What are the most memorable moments you have, since you first started to play football?

  • I would like to ask him this question because, I would like to know one moment he really remembers through out the years of his football experience.

  • What inspired you to play this particular sport (football)?

  • I would ask Henrik this question because; it is interesting to know what inspired him to play or do something.

  • Can you tell me a little about your family? And do you want your children to be professional football players as well? If no why not?

  • I would ask him that because, I would like to know more about his family, and what he wants his children’s future to be like.
