Zlatan heads home goal in first LA Galaxy start

Zlatan heads home goal in first LA Galaxy start

Ibrahimovic, 36, retired from global football following Sweden's failure to get out of the group stage at UEFA Euro 2016, but he recently said that Andersson's staff had been in touch with him regarding his availability for the World Cup.

The former Manchester United forward played 116 times for his national side - scoring 62 goals - before he called it a day in 2016 after Sweden were eliminated from the Euros.

Swedish word "skyhoga" translates as "sky high", implying that he fancies his chances of taking part in one last World Cup.

After scoring twice in his debut as a reserve, Ibrahimović received his first career MLS start Saturday against the Chicago Fire - and proceeded to head home a goal shortly before halftime.

Ibrahimovic has talked in the past about returning to the Sweden set-up, saying only last month: If I want, I am there.

Ibrahimovic has 62 global goals to his name, making him Sweden's all-time leading goalscorer.

They face a tough task getting out of the group stages at the tournament, however, after they were drawn against defending champions Germany, Mexico and South Korea.
