The days of toiling in Sweden's second division may be over for Sundsvall midfielder Kevin Walker after he won the country's "Idol" talent competition.
Walker, who sang with British artist Robbie Williams, picked up more votes to beat rival Elin Bergstrand at a packed Ericsson Globe in Stockholm.
"It's unreal! Unreal! Unbelievable!" he told Reuters immediately after his victory.
While games had to be rescheduled due to Walker's participation in the show and some critics said he was receiving special treatment, fans continued to vote for him week after week to keep him in the competition.
