Return for Zlatan Ibrahimovic gets Sweden talking

Manchester United preparing for Zlatan Ibrahimovic's long-awaited return Return for Zlatan Ibrahimovic gets Sweden talking

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

Janne Andersson chose to dismiss talk that Ibrahimovic could make his global comeback after Sweden held out for a 0-0 draw to secure qualification to next year's World Cup.

Sweden had just secured a 1-0 aggregate victory over Italy with a squad short on big names, a team that snatched second place in European qualifying Group A from the Dutch and beaten France at home before knocking out Italy, all without Zlatan.

"This is incredible! This player [Ibrahimovic] has just stopped to play with Sweden one year and a half ago and we are still here talking about him", Andersson said.

Given the result, speculation is already mounting that Ibrahimovic could return for the tournament having retired from global football in 2016.

By Tuesday, it had over a million likes on Instagram, but Andersson didn't seem entirely positive about a possible return.

'Gosh, we need to talk about the great players we have in this team I believe'. It's sad to sit and talk about someone who hasn't been here.

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.

The post sparked rumours that the 36-year-old was set to make a dramatic comeback in time for next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

'We have many heroes tonight.

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