Patrick Andersson Ruled Out Of The World Cup
News Archive

06/13/2002. Sweden will be without their captain Patrick Andersson for the rest of their World Cup campaign after the Barcelona player returned to Sweden after given up his fight against a thigh injury.

"It is a massive disappointment. I have been fighting all spring just to be here," he said.

"It is a huge blow as I really thought that I would be able to play in the tournament again.

"But that's life and I can only wish the rest of the lads in the team good luck."

Sweden have done fine without him though, as they finished top of the 'Group of Death'.

it´s great for Sweden to see P.Andersson go home to Barcelona, this tournament is Jakobssons! he has been playing really well and a slow and injured Andersson would only make the chances of winning smaller. and really you can´t put Jakobsson to the bench now when he have played so well, that would be both crazy and unfair.

agreed?
