Jon Dahl Tomasson

Date of birth29 August 1976
Place of birthRoskilde
NationalityDanish
Weight75 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionForward

A tall striker with good skills on the ball, Jon Dahl is best used 'in the hole' behind the main attacking force - a role he usually play for Denmark in the Far East. He did well in three seasons at SC Heerenveen, netting 37 goals in 78 appearances, but then had a disappointing season at Newcastle where Kenny Dalglish often played him as an out-and-out striker. He joined the Geordies for £2.2million deal in July 1997. A further £2 million move in the summer of 1998 saw him back in the Netherlands with Feyenoord and his goal-scoring touch returned almost immediately. Jon Dahl won his first cap for Denmark against Croatia in March 1997. Whatever happens in Japan and South Korea, Jon Dahl's plans for 2002-03 appear to be finalised as it has been reported that he will join AC Milan on a free transfer in July. He made the perfect departure from Feyenoord with the winning goal and man-of-the-match performance in his last game for the club as they beat Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Final played at their De Kuip home.

Jon Dahl's fine form continued in the Far East with his two goals securing a 2-1 win in their first game against Uruguay. He added his third from the penalty spot in the next game - a 1-1 draw with Senegal - then grabbed the Danes second as they eliminated reigning champions France with their 2-0 win in the final Group A game.

Appearances in World Cup Qualification: 9
