Our foreign hero: A Croatian goalkeeper and his Swedish death

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter’s aim is to analyze how the unexpected death of a goalkeeper originally from Croatia became relevant for supporters of Allmänna Idrottsklubben (AIK), a Swedish football club. I argue that this particularevent drew the attention of club supporters and influenced them, due to the larger context in which AIK was rooted.
