Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named in Sweden’s squad to face Kosovo and Greece in their October World Cup 2022 qualifiers.
Ibrahimovic has been selected despite concerns over a knee injury that caused him to miss Euro 2020.
Sweden coach Janne Andersson has included Ibrahimovic who will turn 40 on October 3 after his side slumped to a shock 2-1 defeat by Greece after beating Spain at home.
Andersson said in a statement: ‘I decided to include him because I hope and believe that he can be there and contribute.’
