He made his debute for the Swedish international soccer team in 1935, and played 35 games until 1943. During that same period he also played 55 games for the Swedish international hockey team. In the 1936 Olympic Games he represented Sweden in soccer as well as hockey. After his acclaimed career, he was badly injured in a car crash, and had to spend the rest of his life in a wheel-chair. In the 1960 Paralympics he was chosen to represent Sweden in archery, but had to decline by financial reasons. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
