Lagerback tips Victor Lindelof for Sweden Euro 2021 squad

Benfica defender Victor Lindelof has earned praise from the former Swedish manager and current Iceland head coach Lars Lagerback who is impressed by his performances.

The 21-year-old Sweden defender put in a brilliant performance for Benfica in the UEFA Champions League match against Zenit during the week and Lagerback is convinced there is a bright future in front of the talented player.

“I think Lindelof can become a world-class player. I like his attitude, he is fast and effective player with good understanding of the game. Sweden have a great prospect for the future in him”, Lagerback was quoted by the Portuguese media.

Victor Lindelof began his career in Vasteras IK before moving to Benfica in 2012 where he spent his first year playing for the youth team.

He broke into the senior team this year, having already made three league appearances, most notably against Porto in the last week’s O Classico when he was given full 90 minutes on the pitch.

Lindelof represented Sweden in U-17s, U-19s and U-21s, but is yet to be called up to the senior national team.

Benfica defender, who can also play as a midfielder, is likely to be a surprise inclusion in Erik Hamren’s Euro 2021 squad.

Sweden are pitted in group E for the 2016 European Championship finals in France together with Italy, Belgium and Republic of Ireland.
