A key member of the Swedish side that finished third in the 1994 World Cup with four goals, Dahlin started his club career at Malmo before impressing while playing for Borussia Mönchengladbach. He subsequently joined Roma, but failed to make a substantial impact during his brief spell in Serie A.

The striker signed for Blackburn in 1997, but could only manage six goals in 15 starts during a two-year stint with the club.

After a similarly fruitless, injury-hit loan spell with Hamburger SV, a back injury forced him to retire in 1999 at the age of 30.

“I just couldn’t do myself justice,” he said of the move to Blackburn in a 2010 interview with the Lancashire Telegraph.
