Left fullback from Norway

Fredrik André Bjørkan Norwegian August 21, 1998 Bodø/Glimt Left full-back 180 cm / 75 kg 5'11'' / 165 lbs Number 26 International U-21

Bjørkan is a fullback with a lot of tools in the final third, he can dribble, cross, pass to center and wide areas, cut to the middle and go to wider areas. He has a good pace and control to make progressive runs and timing to be the free man.

On the defensive side, he can anticipate on the opponent half and recover the ball. He also uses his pace to chase down winger on his side. His main weakness is aerial duels, he does not has the timing or the jump to win that kind of duels.

He is a fullback so of course, the majority of his actions are on the wide areas, but moves to the middle a lot especially close to the final third.
