Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been called up to the Sweden squad at the age of 41 for their European Championship qualifiers, a year after his last cap.
Sweden will face Belgium and Azerbaijan later this month.
Sweden’s national team head coach, Janne Andersson said he doesn’t see Ibrahimovic “as a starter” but that it will offer his side more “substitution possibilities”.
The AC Milan forward, who is Sweden’s all-time top scorer, with 62 goals in 121 matches, has been sidelined for much of the season because of a knee injury.
He quit international football after Euro 2016 but returned in 2021 for their unsuccessful World Cup qualifying campaign.
