There, the authorities discovered the Gothenburg club Örgryte IS coming talent Limpar. The reigning Swedish champions lured the players in early 1986 in the Allsvenskan, where he established himself immediately as a regular player. On the side of Jan Hellström, Conny Karlsson, Sven Andersson, Gunnar Samuelsson and he got into 19 games on the field and scored five goals this season. Nevertheless, the success of the previous year are not repeated and the club found itself in a table just before the ninth relegation places. The U-21 national team, however, moved into the senior national team squad. Under coach Olle Nordin made his debut in April 1987 with a 3-1 away victory against the Soviet selection and wearing next to a two-time scorers Mats Magnusson on the scoresheet. He subsequently established himself in the squad of a national team, he initially remained mostly the role of the replacement player. In the season 1987 the club was in the middle of the league, but was able to report back the following year in the title fight.

On the side of Peter Közle, Uwe Rapolder and Rene Sutter, he reached the championship finals, which was completed as a table in fifth. In parallel with the Swedish national team, he returned back to the forefront of the national teams. While he was in the course of the qualification largely been only a reserve player, but the team had qualified for Glenn Hysén, Klas Ingesson, Peter Larsson and Johnny Ekström unbeaten as group winners ahead of England World Cup finals for the 1990. This was enough for the Italian club Cremonese reference to Limpar in November 1989 to lure in the Serie A. Under coach Tarcisio Burgnich he became the Erstligaaufsteiger Although at first as a player and played 24 games this season, despite the commitment of players like Gustavo Dezotti or Fulvio Bonomi was the team of Giuseppe Favalli, Enrico Piccioni and Dario Marcolin in the top division a chance and got a table next to last right again. However, the Swede had been established in the spring of 1990 in the country and was therefore selected 22 players to complete roster for the World Cup tournament in the summer. The first two tournament games against Brazil and Scotland, he was in the starting lineup, after each defeat, however, remained 1:2 coach Nordin forced for the last group game against the team of Costa Rica to switch the setup. Without Contribute Limpars was also this game is lost, so that the selection took an early trip home. Following the tournament Limpar joined the English First Division.
