Anton Hysen, the 20-year-old British-born professional soccer player for Sweden's Utsiktens BK who came out earlier this week, says he can't believe he's the only openly gay soccer player in the entire country.

"It's so fucked up," Hysen said in an interview with Offside magazine. "It's totally sick when you think about it. ... Where the hell is everyone else?"

Earlier this week Hysen, the son of soccer star Glenn Hysen, announced he was gay, saying, "I am a footballer. And gay. If I perform as a footballer, then I do not think it matters if I like girls or boys."
