The Scandinavian striker has a long month to recover from his injury which should not prevent him from being called up by Sweden coach Janne Anderson. With 17 goals scored in 27 Serie A matches, Zlatan Ibrahimovic convinced AC Milan to extend his lease for one year. Sweden is in Group E along with Spain, Poland and Slovakia.
