21: Tomas Brolin - Sweden (USA 1994)

Swedish football reached its zenith in the blazing summer of 1994. After going close on home soil at Euro ’92 the Swedes went all the way to the semi-finals in America with only eventual winners Brazil defeating them on their route to an eventual third place. Parma superstar Tomas Brolin, who broke English hearts two years earlier, was one of many who shone as he scored a clever goal against Romania during a thrilling a quarter-final. One of the best free-kicks of the whole tournament sold their opponents a dummy the size of Texas leaving Brolin to sneak in and smash home. Cue the trademark Swedish pirouette. It was to be his career highlight and the best performance by the Swedes since they reached the final way back in 1958.
