Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to return to international duty for Sweden, according to reports.

The 39-year-old AC Milan striker hasn’t played for his country since Euro 2016, when he was last seen in a 1-0 group-stage loss to Belgium.

Ibrahimovic is expected to make a spectacular return, according to FotbollDirekt, and the maverick forward will be called up to Janne Andersson’s squad on March 16.

The Milan star had previously shown interest in representing his country at the 2018 World Cup, but he announced last year that he will not be returning to the national team.
Ibrahimovic could play in the World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Kosovo, as well as the March friendly against Estonia.

Since the 39-year-old met with Sweden boss, speculation about his international prospects has been rampant in recent months.

‘It felt normal and necessary to meet and discuss this as soon as possible when Zlatan opened up for games in the national team,’ Andersson said when asked about their conversation.

‘I’m grateful we were able to schedule a meeting so fast.’

Ibrahimovic has 62 goals in 112 games, making him Sweden’s all-time top scorer. He has never scored in the World Cup and has only scored six times in European Championships.

This season, the Swedish striker has been in superb form for AC Milan, scoring 14 Serie A goals in as many appearances.
