Ibrahimovic won't be part of Sweden's World Cup team

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be coming out of retirement to play for Sweden at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. He said that he has not changed his mind regarding the national squad.

The Swedes in the play-offs for the world Cup sensationally beat the Italian national team.

Ibrahimovic made a decision to retire from worldwide football following Sweden's failure to get out of the group stage at Euro 2016.

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.

Finally, the situation with the arrival of Ibrahimovic in the world Cup in Russian Federation has clarified the General Manager of the national team, Lars RICHT.

"I'm going to the World Cup, yes".

Despite being 36 years old, Ibrahimovic is still far and away Sweden's best player and most important guy in attack.

On Wednesday, Ibrahimovic posted a video on Twitter which portrayed him observing an incoming phone call from "Janne" - potentially referring to Sweden head coach Janne Andersson.

"I spoke to Zlatan on Tuesday".

"It doesn't change anything for me", he said last month.

"If you rejected the team, I do not think you should come back. Sweden's first in through the times in team will not play the world cup", the statement said.
