Zlatan named in Sweden’s World Cup qualifiers
AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named in Sweden’s national team squad for the World Cup qualifying games against Georgia and Kosova.
The 39-year-old is set to make his return to the national team set up after announcing his retirement five years ago.
Ibrahimovic expressed his desire to make a comeback last November and the national team coach Jane Andersson facilitated it by meeting up with the striker in Milan.
This season, Zlatan has been in sensational form by finding the nets 14 times in 14 appearances in Serie A and also helped Rossoneri challenge for the Scudetto.
The Swede also took to Twitter to announce his return to the national team, writing ” the return of the God.”
Ibrahimovic expected to feature against Man Utd in the Europa League.
While the Swedish fans must have been over the moon following the sensational news, the Milan faithful have also been given a huge boost as Zlatan is likely to feature in the second leg of the Europa League clash against Manchester United.
Rossoneri have been without the veteran striker for the last few weeks due to a thigh injury he suffered against Roma.
Now, Ibrahimovic is expected to make a timely return to the first team as he was seen in the training ahead of Thursday’s game.
Milan grabbed a crucial away goal in the 1-1 draw against the Red Devils last week and now it remains to be seen which team would progress to the last eight.
