Zlatan Ibrahimovic drops huge World Cup hint

LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given a hint that he may make a swift return to the Swedish national team for the World Cup tournament.
The former Manchester United striker dropped a message on his Twitter handle on Sunday, suggesting he is ready to come out of international retirement to play at one more major tournament.
He said: ‘The chance of me playing in the World Cup is skyhoga #FifaWorldCup2018.’

Zlatan last featured for the national team in France 2016, where they ended up as the weeping boys of the group managing only a point in the process. It was a sad end to a fantastic international career- where he set the record as Sweden’s all-time top goalscorer with 62 goals and 116 caps— and it seems we’ve not seen the last of him as he’s eyeing a return to the national team.

With the striker in a rich vein of form, having scored three goals in three matches, the widely traveled man has hinted he would be in Russia if he ‘feels well.’ He said: ‘I want to play football, we’ll see what happens. They call me every day, they ask me how am I doing, but we need to take a step at a time. I repeat if I feel well and if I want to, I’ll be there.’

The Swedes were outstanding in the qualifying series where they denied Holland a playoff spot in Group A before defying the odds to deny four-time Champions Italy a place in the World Cup. The triumph over the Azzuris meant they would be making a return to the World Cup for the first time since the Germany 2006 tournament.

The Scandinavians have been drawn in Group F where they face a daunting task to make it beyond the group stages with defending Champions Germany, Mexico, and South Korea the other teams in the group.
