Zlatan slammed on social media following 'arrogant' tweet about Sweden

Indeed, Sweden coach Janne Andersson was visibly irked in his postmatch news conference when the main topic of discussion appeared not to be his team's success, but rather the prospect of Ibrahimovic reversing his retirement to appear in Russian Federation next summer.

The 36-year-old Manchester United striker - who has not played since April due to a knee ligament injury - dominated the post-match news conference but Sweden head coach Andersson preferred to focus on the group of players who sealed the country's passage to Russian Federation next year.

But his aforementioned message has fuelled talk that he could be pulling on the yellow shirt once more - and compete in what would be his third World Cup.

"Zlatan's only comment following the match was a picture posted on social media of the victorious Swedish team, with the caption we are Zweden".

But Andersson was at a loss to explain why all the questions were about an injured player who has been retired for 18 months after his side's achievement.

'Gosh, we need to talk about the great players we have in this team I believe'.

After the game Ibrahimovic, who announced his retirement from worldwide football last summer, marked his country's remarkable achievement with a tweet reading: "We are Zweden", along with an image of his former teammates celebrating.

Andersson wanted the focus to be on the players that achieved the goal rather than the 36-year-old veteran. I am a bit moved but obviously very happy with the result.
