International career

For Sweden, Andersson made 83 appearances and scored 31 goals, both near the top in national history. He played in the 1992 and 2000 European Championships. He led the Swedish team in scoring with five goals in the 1994 World Cup, a feat which tied him for third place as the tournament's leading goalscorer. His physical size gave him an advantage in the air, and in this tournament he became known for towering over defenders to score goals with his head; in Sweden's quarter-final win over Romania, he headed in a vital goal by outjumping even the Romanian goalkeeper.

Style of play

Andersson was considered one of the top-class strikers of his generation. A tall, strong and prolific goalscorer, in spite of his lack of pace or notable technical skills, he was renowned for his excellent abilities in the air, which enabled him both to score goals and get on the end of long balls to provide assists for his teammates; due to his playing style, he was frequently dubbed an "old-fashioned" centre-forward in the media throughout his career. BBC has described Andersson as "one of the world's greatest forwards in the air", adding that "his aerial ability is complemented by decent passing and unselfish support play that has allowed other strikers to flourish alongside him."
