With an eloquent individual record (7 goals and 1 assist), the 39-year-old player has retired from the Swedish selection since 2016 but has not hidden that in return would be to his liking. “A long time since we haven’t seen each other“, he had commented on Monday on his Twitter account with a photo of him wearing the jersey of the selection.
A counter of 116 selections for Ibrahimovic

Janne Andersson, the Sweden coach did not take Ibrahimovic’s desire into account when unveiling his list for the next selection matches (Denmark on November 11, then Croatia on the 14th and France on the 17th). It is therefore quite possible that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s counter will remain stuck at 116 caps.
It is not AC Milan who will complain about it as the team led by Stefano Pioli faces Lille on Thursday evening in the Europa League (9 p.m.).
