Pehrsson spent a month at Valley Parade in 1996 when Chris Kamara was manager, but played only once for the club.

Now, he is hoping to put that inside knowledge to the test when Estonia hosts England on October 12 before the rematch on October 9, 2015.

“I actually played in Bradford, but only for one month and I had one game,” said Pehrsson.

“I was loaned out from Djurgardens, where I played, to Bradford. “The best memory was playing together in central midfield with Chris Waddle and Chris Kamara was the coach.”

Swedish-born Pehrsson added: “I was the coach of Aalborg a few years ago and we nearly beat Manchester City in the UEFA in 2009. We lost on penalty kicks in the last round of 16. So that close.

“That was a good adventure. I don’t know Roy (Hodgson) from his time as a coach in Sweden, but I know of him. We worked together one or two times at the TV station in Sweden commentating on Premier League games, so I know him a little bit.

“He is huge in Sweden now. So there are some memories of England football and to be open I have been working covering the Premier League since last summer. I have been an expert commentator so that is good.”
