Claesson is one of the players who has come to the fore under Janne Andersson. Omitted from Sweden’s UEFA EURO 2016 squad, the 26-year-old has since established himself as first choice for the right-sided midfield role. He made eight appearances during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying campaign, starting both legs of the play-off win over Italy. The wide man will also feel firmly at home in Russia, having established himself at Russian Premier League side Krasnodar after moving from Elfsborg in 2017.
