Sweden always used to have good goalkeepers – Thomas Ravelli, Magnus Hedman, Andreas Isaksson – just to name a few. Sixten is the next who is tipped to be new “The Blue-Yellow” number one in the future. He was born in Rotterdam but he quickly moved to Sweden with his parents. He joined Malmoe FF youth academy at the age of 12 and since then he is considered to be one of the greatest talents in country. He was a part of Sweden national team during UEFA Under-17 Championship and according to the author of this blog he was the best keeper of the tournament along with Anton Mitryushkin from Russia. He has not yet made his debut in the MFF first team, but he was on the bench several times and it is only a matter of time before he gets his chance from Rikard Norling.
