Manchester United fans never got a chance to see summer signing Victor Lindelof in action ever since he made his debut during last month’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old’s signing from Benfica was seen to be a bid to accommodate him in Jose Mourinho’s defensive lineup.
Two months down the lane, the defender is yet to cement his place as a regular member of the team and is still awaiting his first Premier League match.
Far away in Sweden’s national team, however, Lindelof’s story is quite different.
During the Swedes’ 4-0 World Cup qualifier victory over Belarus, not only did the player get to start the game, but he also played a major role in ensuring a clean sheet.
In one particular instance during the game, Lindelof justified his £30 million price tag by producing a defence-splitting pass that eventually ended up resulting in his side’s third goal of the night.
