WCQ: Zlatan returns to Sweden squad after knee injury

Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named in Sweden’s squad to face Kosovo and Greece in their October World Cup 2022 qualifiers, 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.

“I decided to include him because I hope and believe that he can be there and contribute. He has a period of injury behind him, but it’s improving all the time,” Andersson said in a statement.
