Johan Eklund (born 30 May 1984 in Falun, Sweden) is a Swedish footballer who plays for IK Brage as a forward.[1]

Career[edit]

Eklund grew up in Falun where he started out playing for hometown club Falu BS which later turned into Falu FK. In his youth he was also a Team handball and Floorball player before deciding to invest all his time into football at age 15 or 16. In 2008, he was signed by IK Brage to play as a defensive midfielder but was soon moved back into his natural forward position. There he had an extremely successful year in 2009 where he scored 21 goals in 23 games and helped his team win promotion to second tier Superettan. The following year he also became a top ten goalscorer of the 2010 Superettan.[2][3]
