Club career

Allbäck started his professional career with Örgryte IS. He then proceeded to have two modest stints abroad, with Lyngby Boldklub and A.S. Bari, before rejoining his first club.

From 2000–04, he would play two seasons each, with moderate individual success, with SC Heerenveen and Aston Villa, respectively, joining Hansa Rostock in 2004–05.

In the summer of 2005, aged 32, Allbäck signed with F.C. Copenhagen. On 1 November 2006, Allbäck scored F.C. Copenhagen's first goal ever in the UEFA Champions League – a winner against two-times competition winners Manchester United F.C. In that match, he was also awarded the fans' Man of the Match award. 20 days later he also scored against S.L. Benfica at Estádio da Luz – a match lost 3–1. Allbäck scored again in the last group stage match against Celtic at Parken in a 3–1 win. After the final homegame of the Danish Superliga 2006–07 season, he was presented with the fans' Player of the Year award, as the side emerged back-to-back champions, and the striker netted 11 league goals.

In August 2007, Allbäck scored a late away equalizer against Beitar Jerusalem in the second leg of the second round Champions League qualifier in extra time, to keep Copenhagen's group stage dreams alive, although the side would eventually bow out to Benfica in the next round.

On 1 July 2008, Allbäck returned to Sweden and Örgryte, his third spell at the club.[1]

On 14 December 2009, after Örgryte IS was relegated from Allsvenskan, Allbäck announced his retirement from football.[2]

After Sweden's victory against Netherlands, it was offical that Allbäck would participate in Örgryte's next home game against Motala, Allbäck came on in the 69th minute but could not affect the game in any way.[3]

International career

Allbäck played for Sweden at Euro 2000, 2002 FIFA World Cup, Euro 2004, 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008, totalling 74 caps with 30 goals. He made his debut for the national side on 27 November 1999 in a friendly against South Africa.

On 20 June 2006 during the 2006 World Cup, Allbäck helped Sweden earn a 2–2 draw against England by netting their first goal. This goal by Allbäck was the 2,000th goal scored in the history of the World Cup. On September 6, he scored twice to help propel Sweden past visitors Liechtenstein 3–1 in the second of their 2008 European Championship qualifying matches.

On 6 June 2007, during Euro 2008 qualifiers, Allbäck scored a highly surreal goal against Iceland when an opponent, Ívar Ingimarsson, gave him the ball incorrectly thinking a free kick had been awarded.[4]

After Sweden's group stage exit from Euro 2008 (in which he played as a second-half substitute against Russia in Innsbruck), Allbäck announced that he would retire from the national team.[5][dead link]
