Sorry to trample on your very dreams, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be coming out of worldwide retirement to play for Sweden at the 2018 World Cup. He told me he hasn't changed his mind regarding playing for the national team - it's still a no.
Known for his swagger, Zlatan said "it wouldn't be a World Cup" if he didn't play, adding, "I'm going to the World Cup, yes".

Babe Ruth (1921) and Alex Rodriguez (2007) are the only other Yankees with that many homers and RBIs in the first 22 games. A day after making his debut, Torres singled in the eighth, ending an none-for-seven start for the prized 21-year-old.
Swedish Football Federation head Lars Richt revealed he did hold talks with Ibrahimovic and the striker has not changed his mind to come back to the national team. Since his arrival in the states, he's been asked several times about whether or not he will be at this year's World Cup and had made it seem like it was a possibility in those interviews and through his own social media account.
He said: "I have obviously been intensively courted by betting companies throughout my career, but up until now I have not been presented to anything that has triggered me".
However, Andersson revealed that Ibrahimovic had not spoken to him about his desire to go to the World Cup. "Said he wants to return to the team, but it's not so", - quotes the words of RICHT official website of the Football Association of Sweden.
