Rangers favourite Filip Helander provided an assist and kept a clean sheet in Sweden’s Euro qualifying win.
Sweden have qualified for Euro 2020 and they finished in second place in Group F. Spain finished top and Sweden beat Scandinavian neighbours Norway to the second qualifying spot.
Helander has played his part in their qualification. The towering defender won his 10th cap for Sweden and it was a successful night from an individual and team perspective.
Sweden beat Faroe Islands 3-0 with Helander providing the assist for his country’s second goal. He was dominant in the air and contributed towards a well-earned clean sheet.
Rangers fans have been loving Helander in recent weeks. The popular Swede has firmly established himself in Steven Gerrard’s preferred line-up. With his passion, power and aerial prowess, Helander is becoming a cult hero at Ibrox.
After hearing that Helander played the full 90 minutes, picked up an assist and kept a clean sheet, Rangers fans were quick to praise him. Here are some tweets about the 26-year-old’s latest international outing.
