Birmingham No2 Black: Larsson deserves Sweden call

Birmingham City No2 Eric Black says midfielder Sebastian Larsson deserves his Sweden call-up.

"I'm delighted for Seb and it's a real boost for him," Black told Birmingham's website. "If anybody deserves it it's him.

"It's a real testament to the way he's been playing for us.

"He trains every day at a really top level and he's shown without doubt he can play in the Premiership in either that wide right area or a central area.

"His attitude is fantastic.

"He hates losing and he's a real winner and I think it's well and truly justified for all the efforts he's put in.

"His fitness is exceptional and he puts high performance levels week in and week out."
