The Legendary AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was named on Thursday in Sweden’s squad for this month’s Euro 2024 qualifiers, when he could break Italian goalkeeper Dino Zoff’s age record.
This season, Ibrahimovic has played just three games for Milan after recovering from a knee issue.
“Zlatan has made three slightly longer substitutions now in Milan and feels fit and in decent shape even though he has been away for a while,” coach Janne Andersson said in a statement.
“From that perspective, I think he can contribute. Especially on the pitch, but also off the pitch,” Andersson added.
Should Sweden make it all the way to next year’s competition in Germany, Ibrahimovic could also beat the record set by Hungary’s Gabor Kiraly, who played in the 2016 edition aged 40.
After Sweden failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup Zlatan said last year that he will “continue as long as I can,” and he has said he is “panicking” at the prospect of retiring.
The three countries are all in the qualifying group F, together with Estonia and Austria, with the top two reaching the finals.
