Zlatan will play with the Sweden's National Team for the World Cup tournament

Zlatan Ibrahimovic shed a few tears of pride as he discussed his upcoming return to Sweden’s national team for their World Cup qualifiers after a five-year absence. The 39-year-old, who quit international football after Euro 2016, choked up when asked what his sons, Maximilian, 14, and Vincent, 12, thought of his decision to answer his country’s call again and return to the world stage. “To play in the national team is the biggest thing you can do as a football player, and as I was following them (Sweden), inside me I was feeling I think I can help them, I think I can do something,” Ibrahimovic added.
