Photo: Niall Carson / PA PA Archive/PA Images Given sport’s global popularity and football’s status as the most popular sport, it is perhaps surprising that the beautiful game was not really touched by the ugliness of terrorism until November 13, 2015.

Emil Forsberg. Photo: Claudio Bresciani/TT Who is Emil Forsberg, the midfielder carrying Swedish hopes into the 2018 World Cup? Midfielder Forsberg, known for his knack of cracking open a defence with the perfect pass, just had an exceptional season with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. Football runs in the 26-year-old's family: his grandfather Lennart Forsberg played for Sundsvall in eastern Sweden, and his father Leif was a legend at the same club, scoring 143 goals in more than 400 games between 1980 and 1990.
