Five years after making his international retirement, legendary football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic is all set to play for Sweden.
AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't just an ordinary footballer, as his entire career has been about making big statements with both on-the-pitch statistics and off-the-pitch talks.
While many soccer players think of retiring from the sport after getting into their mid-thirties, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is breaking the stereotypes by coming out of retirement while approaching his forties. The former PSG forward is no less like a French wine, which just gets on better as he gets old.

Zlatan himself might not have thought about playing for Sweden again when he retired five years ago. Having played for Major League Soccer too for more than a year, the Swedish athlete made a comeback to Europe and in his former club AC Milan in January 2020. In the current 2020-21 season, the striker has 14 goals in 14 appearances, which definitely makes him more attractive for serving the national team yet again.
As per several reports, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a proper discussion with Janne Andersson, the coach of Sweden's International Football Team, which later had them recall the former skipper in the side. Further, the squad for the side's upcoming friendly and world cup qualifier disclosed the return of Zlatan, which happened to rock the entire football universe.
Ibrahimovic has made a reputation out of his arrogance and cocky nature beyond his extraordinary abilities on the football ground. He couldn't stop himself from posting one of his old pictures in a Swedish shirt and hype his comeback from retirement with a caption, 'The return of the God.'
