Zlatan at FIFA World Cup for Sweden?

Over the weekend the world was introduced to an interesting Swedish word – 'skyhöga'. If you think it means 'sky high' you'd be right. In a tweet LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic wrote, “The chance of me playing in the World Cup is skyhöga”.


It’s been a year since the powerful striker kicked a ball in anger, but in his first game for LA Galaxy he came on in the 71st minute, scoring twice to help Galaxy fight back from 3-0 down to beat bitter rivals LAFC 4-3. His first goal was a long-range scorcher from 40 metres out. In moments the shirt was off to reveal the ripped torso of a man who clearly has plenty of football left in him. His comment after the match: “People wanted Zlatan…they got Zlatan.” Watch KweséESPN interview with Ibrahimovic


Now the question is, will Sweden get Zlatan? The big forward retired from international football in 2016, but when Sweden unexpectedly beat Italy to qualify for Russia 2018, Zlatan had second thoughts. What national side wouldn’t want Zlatan? Maybe Brazil or Germany, perhaps even Spain, could leave him out. But most teams would be champing at the bit to include him in their line-up. He is after all the second-most decorated active footballer, with an incredible 32 trophies. He was a legend for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) before moving to Manchester United in 2016. With 62 international goals, he is Sweden’s all-time top goal-scorer. 


Sweden have been grouped with Germany, Mexico and Korea at the FIFA World Cup. Catch those games LIVE on Kwesé TV.
