Larsson is a Swedish midfielder. Along with Stefan Levin, Brolin and Fredericks, they form the Four Knights of the Midnight Sun.


Prior to the Battle of World Youth Arc Edit

Larsson was part of the Viking Project, a plan of Sweden to assimilate the soccer of other countries. With that purpose, he plays in an unspecified Spanish club. This project served as a base for another one, the Victory Project, in which data of the opponents' players was thoroughly studied.

Battle of World Youth Arc Edit

World Youth Tournament

Sweden's plan for the group stage of the World Youth is ending up second, so that they will be able to avoid Brazil in the knockout stage. Therefore, they purposely tie against Colombia and USA, with the captain Levin not playing those two matches. And, during the last match of the group stage against Germany, with both Deuter Müller and Karl Heinz Schneider injured due to the Levin Shoot and Germany being thoroughly studied, Sweden manages to win 5-3, thus ending up second as planned.

At the beginning of the quarterfinal against Japan, thanks to cooperative plays between Levin, Larsson and Fredericks, they steals the ball from Shingo Aoi and then gets past Jun Misugi. However, Tomeya Akai takes the ball from Levin.

Later, Larsson attempts to score with his S.S.S., however Genzo Wakabayashi comes out of his goal to block it. The first half ends 0-0.

Sweden decides to change their tactic at the beginning of the second half, using Brolin, Larsson, Fredericks, Lyung and Ravelli as decoys in order to give Levin free space to shoot. Here, some certain events occur, which marks the change in Levin. After that, the team becomes more united, however the score remains 0-0 after 90 minutes.

During extra time, Tsubasa Ozora manages to score the golden goal for Japan, thus eliminating Sweden from the tournament.
