Zlatan celebrates Sweden's qualification for 2018 World Cup

It was a heroic achievement for the Swedes, but even after such a stunning result, Andersson was hit with questions over whether Ibrahimovic, who retired following Euro 2016 with 62 goals in 116 caps, would be returning to worldwide action.

However, Andersson preferred to praise his players after they kept back-to-back clean sheets against the Azzurri, who will miss their first World Cup in 60 years.

"This is incredible", he said.

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

We can think of one person who is most definitely revelling in all this feverish Zlatan chatter, and his name begins with a "Z".

¿Regresa? Ibrahimovic podría ser la sorpresa para el Mundial de Rusia 2018
Bajo el mando de Jan Andersson , Suecia luchó por mantener el cero en su arco y la receta implementada dio resultado. El delantero del Manchester United dijo adiós a la Selección de su país tras quedar afuera de la Euro 2016.

The Manchester United striker has not played for Sweden since their exit at Euro 2016 Group Stage in France and has been unable to play at all since a career-threatening knee injury while playing in the Europa League last season. I am a bit moved but obviously very happy with the result.

This was, of course, the first qualifying campaign Sweden had played since the worldwide retirement of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, arguably the greatest player in their country's history.

"Considering that he has made a decision to leave worldwide football, he is a great champion, but we had to adapt and found another style".

But after making good progress during his recovery, he's re-signed a new contract with the club.
