Farnerud received a last minute call up to Sweden's squad for Japan and South Korea after Wimbledon's Hakan Mild was ruled out with a heel injury. The young Monaco midfielder had most of his 2001/02 season ruined by a broken leg but has recovered with enough to make a suitable impression. He started his career in Sweden with Landskrona and was said to have attracted the interest of Ajax before joining Monaco in 1998. Farnerud progressed to make his full international debut in a 2-2 draw in Greece in February 2002.
