Martin Jol believes that if Alex Kacaniklic can handle the Premier League then he is good enough to play for Sweden

Fulham manager Martin Jol has backed winger Alex Kacaniklic to play for Sweden at Euro 2012.

The 20-year-old spent two months on loan at Watford, scoring once in 12 appearances, but his performances saw him recalled and he was drafted in for first-team duties.

Sweden coach Erik Hamren watched the left sided player during Fulham’s win at Bolton and Jol believes he can play at international level.

“They saw what he can do, but that was with Watford,” the Whites boss said.

“He’s got to show what he can do at the highest level.

“I’m sure if he does that he will be involved.

“Normally, if you play in the Premier League you’re good enough to play in the Swedish national team.”
