Ibrahimovic (39 years) had retired from international football after the 2016 European Cup and has not carried the Swedish national team shirt since then. Still, he raised doubts again on Monday about the possibility of his return to the squad.
In an interview with the Swedish sports newspaper “Sportbladet,” Stefan Peterson, director of the national team, said that he had not been in contact recently with Ibrahimovic, who is marking a great start with AC Milan.
According to the same newspaper, Milan has also not received any calls from the Swedish Football Association about the player.
This is not the first time that “Ibra” hints at the possibility of his return from retirement. As he had previously indicated in 2018, he might return from the decision to retire to participate in the World Cup in Russia; the Union later refuted that hypothesis.
Yesterday, Sunday, the veteran Swedish giant proved his outstanding level when he helped return Milan to the track of local victories, by leading him to a 2-1 victory over Udinese, after making a goal and scoring another in the 83rd minute with a scissor shot.
Ibrahimovic raised his goalscoring result this season to seven goals, strengthening his top scorer list in his fourth match this season with his team. He missed the opening two matches due to his infection with the new Coronavirus.
