Swedish FA confirms no Ibra for World Cup

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic Former Manchester United striker ‘definitely not’ going to the World Cup

Swedish FA chief Lars Richt said: "I talked to Zlatan on Tuesday".

In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show last week, the MLS's new star teased fans that he may come out of retirement to play in Russian Federation, suggesting that it "wouldn't be a World Cup if he didn't play" before adding that he would be going to Russian Federation (but stopped short of revealing in which capacity).

The Sweden Football Association announced on Thursday that the Los Angeles Galaxy star will not be part of the squad when it plays in the World Cup for the first time since 2006. "Zlatan Ibrahimović has not changed the national team".

The 36-year-old retired from global football ahead of joining Manchester United ahead of the 2016/17 campaign, during which he claimed 27 goals.


Sweden's current team may have a role in that.

Speaking last week, Anderson said he had not spoken to Ibrahimovic about a return but insisted the final decision on the squad would be his.

Sweden's unexpected qualification for the finals at the expense of Italy, however, has prompted speculation surrounding a potential return to the national side for Zlatan. I respect what he said and those who said "yes". In the group stage of the tournament, the team of Andersson will play against Germany, Sweden and South Korea.

"Zlatan is very welcome to call me", Andersson added.
