Zlatan celebrates Sweden's qualification for 2018 World Cup

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Playing in-front of an expectant San Siro stadium, Italy's fans fully expected them to overturn Sweden's 1-0 deficit from the first leg in Stockholm.

Stockhom: The final whistle which signalled that Sweden had qualified for the World Cup was still echoing around the San Siro when the speculation began - will retired record goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic return for the finals in Russian Federation?

He posted the following picture on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: "We are Zweden".

The 36-year-old walked away from the national team after a disappointing group stage exit at Euro 2016, ending an global career that saw him score 62 goals, many of them spectacular, in 116 matches for his country.

"Gosh, we need to talk about the great players we have in this team I believe".

The 36-year-old Manchester United striker - who has not played since April due to a knee ligament injury - dominated the post-match news conference but Sweden head coach Andersson preferred to focus on the group of players who sealed the country's passage to Russian Federation next year.

"What I wanted to say was that this was the demonstration that our collective acted like this during the whole length of the play-offs", Andersson added.

Ibrahimovic scored a total of 62 goals in 116 appearances and is widely recognised as the nation's greatest ever player.

Andersson even hinted that the 36-year-old wouldn't necessarily be picked given how, in his view, different Sweden's style of play is now compared to when Ibrahimovic was in the team.

We can think of one person who is most definitely revelling in all this feverish Zlatan chatter, and his name begins with a "Z".
