The 39 years old Ac Milan star has popped up from his five-year retirement to boost Sweden’s chances of winning a major trophy.
With European Championship looming in the summer, Ibrahimovic has been named in the country’s latest team. His first task will be in a World Cup qualifier against Georgia and Kosovo.
Ibrahimovic has bagged a total of 62 goals in 116 appearances for Sweden. He retired from international participation in 2016 after Sweden was eliminated at the group stage in the Euro 2016 tournament.
In his recent meeting with Janne Andersson, Ibrahimovic hinted at his willingness to come out of retirement.
Janne Anderson said:
The Swedish missed the first leg of the Europa League against Manchester United due to a groin injury. There is a likelihood of him featuring in the second tie on Thursday night.
