Pontus Anders Mikael Wernbloom (born 25 June 1986 in Kungälv, Bohuslän) is a Swedish football midfielder/striker.

Contents

Career

After playing for a local club, he joined the youth team of IFK Göteborg in 2004, before being promoted to the senior team in 2005[1]. He quickly made a name for himself with his hard tackles, fighting spirit and generally fearless playing style. When Håkan Mild retired after the 2005 season, Wernbloom secured a place in the starting line-up. However during the following season he struggled to retain his place as the club changed its playing style under new management. When striker Marcus Berg left to play for FC Groningen in the summer of 2007, Wernbloom switched to forward and was able to be a starter once again.

In April 2009 he signed a contract with the Dutch club AZ[2], which he joined in June.

International

He debuted for the Swedish U-21 team in 2006, scoring a goal in the 12th minute of the match. On 4 January 2007, he was picked for the Swedish national team's spring tour in South America, and he made his debut on 18 January against Ecuador[3].
