A product of the Bromma-Pojkarna youth set up, Niclas was snapped up by Halmstads in 1989 and he made his debut soon after. He became a regular in the first team in his second season and his consistent performances earned him an international debut in November 1993 against Austria. He missed the 1994 World Cup Finals but soon became a regular in the Swedish squad.

Niclas moved to IFK Gothenburg in 1996 and, after being recommended to Ron Atkinson by Roland Nilsson, signed for Premiership side Sheffield Wednesday in December 1997.

Niclas scored Sweden's goal in their opening game in the 2002 World Cup finals - the 1-1 draw with England in Saitama.
