Mikael Lustig is one of the stalwarts of this Sweden team. The right-back, who can deputise at centre-half when needed,  is a steady and consistent presence in Janne Andersson's back four and has been a near-certain starter for several years.

The 31-year-old, who debuted for the national team a decade ago and is looking forward to his first FIFA World Cup™, is also a fine crosser of the ball. All these qualities, besides his mischievous, fun-loving spirit, have made him a fans' favourite at Celtic, the Scottish club with whom he has just won his second successive domestic treble.
