Johan Esk: Alexander Isaac, proves crisis – now he must play

During the countdown to the european CHAMPIONSHIP-qualification matches against Romania (at home Saturday) and Norway (away Tuesday), there has been a lot of talk about backkrisen.


we are so accustomed to it does not even feel odd that a 19-year-old gets out of a German refrigerator, makes a few goals in the Dutch league and directly have a place in an a-landslagstrupp to tävlingslandskamper.

for many landslagsår had it only sufficed that the current head coach at a truppresentation said, ”it's fun that it goes well and we follow him, of course”.

But with Ola Toivonens thanks-and-goodbye to the national team, John Guidettis and Isaac Kiese-Thelins lack of playing time and a general thin competition it was just to take out Sweden's most exciting footballers.

on last week's landslagspetning to bump into a neat goal in the weekend.

Alexander Isaac countered with a solomål for Willem II against Feyenoord. His fifth goal said two things. The first is that the defenses in this league can be really bad. The other cast legend Ronald de Boer out.

His ”The new Zlatan” perhaps feels fresh and fun in the Netherlands. In american football is the cliché worn down and hits always wrong.

There will never be a new Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Those who received the stamp, they have not even become pale copies. Alexander Isaac need no comparisons.

I and most swedes – saw him play football live. It was the speed of the body and the ability to quickly make the right decisions on the pitch as Alexander did Isaac so special. So especially exciting.

where in the autumn of 2016 everything looked so easy for Alexander to Isaac. It looked like Isaac not touched the grass when he alternated speed and direction in the vicinity of the opposing penalty area and left the bevakarna behind him. It looked like he couldn't miss the target when he finished the AIK.

He was valpig in the body. Mature in the tank. Now he has built on seven to eight kilos. He says that rapid feet are maintained and that the abilty to see where, how and when he should run is developed. I want to see. I want to see him run through a Romanian defense.

in the winter of 2017 gave AIK Isaac-the money to build the squad that gave the gold in 2018. It gave Alexander Isaac, the experience of how the quality and the competition is the one of the best teams in one of the best leagues.

it Was good for Isaac to go there? Too early to say.

It is both impossible and premature to say how high Alexander Isaac's career reaches but it is easy to say what he need most of all. Playtime.

Lending to Willem II was more than a step in the right direction. It was a necessity.

Using the same logic, it is necessary that he gets to play with the national team. To take him here to sit on the bench in the two times of 90 minutes would be totally useless when there is a U21 squad, which also has two matches.

Sweden (in addition to vinterturnén – and with all due respect) does not have any träningslandskamper. Fewer players will get game time during the collections.

the national Coach Janne Andersson have made different choices of the player and spelartyper next to Marcus Berg after the world CUP.

Isaac Kiese-Thelin did a good match in Ola Toivonen-the role. Viktor Claesson came up with a different style of play. Alexander Isaac would be spelartypernas third track.

I don't think Isaac gets to start against Romania, but I don't think that Janne Andersson will take him here to watch two full matches.

To stand on the side of a national team and shout about the fact that young players should get the chance is a fotbollsklassiker. The screaming has nothing to lose.

In this case, Janne Andersson nor anything to lose if he sends in Alexander Isaac on the pitch. Of course, there is not much else to choose from.
