The A-Z of forgotten football heroes: P - Morten Gamst Pedersen

Danial Kennedy | The Premier League has seen a number of players from Scandinavia arrive on the English shores over the last 25 years. Many of these; the likes of Olof Mellberg, Daniel Agger and John Arne Riise, became cult heroes at their respective English clubs.

Philippe Coutinho delivered a decisive third on 68 minutes, firing low into the bottom corner from 12 yards after Fraser Forster failed to deal with Roberto Firmino's drive to complete a dominant display from the hosts.
