Player Profile: Zlatan Ibrahimovic13th Jun 2016 |
|Number of UEFA National games/goals:||40/25|
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the greatest stars of this tournament. On average he’s scored in more than every second game for Sweden in European Championships and qualifications, and the same is true for all competitions and friendlies. Paris Saint-Germain has been the best French team by far in the last seasons, with Zlatan being their undisputed superstar.
This will be Zlatan’s third Euro Championship for Sweden, and he’s scored four goals in the tournament. This means that we will probably see Zlatan celebrating a semi-anniversary if he is to score another one. It’s not unlikely that he will.
”I can’t help but laugh at how perfect I am”

Sweden does not have any serious chances to win the tournament – but this doesn’t mean that Zlatan doesn’t have a chance to be one of the absolute stars. He’s a player that attracts a lot of attention both on and off the field, so we are guaranteed to see a lot of fuzz about him. Sweden will face strong opposition in Ireland, Italy and Belgium, so the services of Zlatan is very needed.
