Retired Sweden striker Henrik Larrson believes Sweden boss Janne Andersson made the right call not naming Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the World Cup squad.

“A fit Zlatan, the way he was before his injury, I think any coach in the world would bring him,” the former Barcelona man said. “But he is not that. There is no point talking about that. It is about the players who are there.

“He is the best player we ever had from Sweden so it is not strange the questions came up. But I think it is good now for the group that they can focus on the team and the squad. 

“If you look back through history when Sweden succeed we need to be a collective. Everybody needs to read from the same page and then everything can happen at the World Cup.”

Zlatan Ibrahimoc has scored 62 goals in 116 appearances for Sweden.
