His youth team are playing regularly against Finnish and Swedish top youth teams as well as some Czech ones. So while I imagine he moves to Sweden soon his development should be ok until he hits maybe 18 (where they stop playing other countries teams in tournaments so often.)

A lot of the euro youth teams go round Europe a lot, even a lot of the teams from the worse leagues/youth development areas like Britain. (hence why Brett and Brendan Perlini were not ruined playing in the UK as kids... playing Scandinavian and eastern euro competition a lot in tournaments.)
