Ibrahimovic to retire from international football

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has announced his intention to retire from international football after Euro 2016.

Ibrahimovic, who has scored 62 games in 115 games for his country, was named in Sweden's provisional 35-man squad for the Rio Olympics later this year but the striker has decided to call time on his international career after the European Championships.

"The last game of the Euros will be my last game with Sweden. I will not participate in the Olympics," Ibrahimovic told reporters.

Sweden will play Belgium in their final Group B game and Wednesday's match could Ibrahimovic's final game for his country as the Swedes have picked up just one point from their first two games.

"So my final game of the Euros will be my last. So let's hope it goes as long as possible. I hope that tomorrow will not be my last game. But I don't have any regrets," Ibrahimovic added.

"There is no disappointment. I'm very proud to be the captain of Sweden.

"I want to take this moment to thank the fans for always supporting me Wherever I go, I will always carry the Sweden flag with me and stand with it."

The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain striker is expected to join Manchester United after Euro 2016.
