Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played his last game for Sweden at the Euros in France.

The Sweden striker has made 116 appearances for the Sweden national team during his career and scored 62 goals during the process. His last game for Sweden has been the defeat against Belgium 1-0.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stated that he was disappointed with the defeat and would have preferred to end his international career with a victory.
However, he said that that he has enjoyed his career with Sweden and that he has kept some great memories. It was a great achievement for him to have played all these matches for his country and to bring good memories to the fans.

Ibrahimovic said that he came from a small town and that it was a great achievement for him to become Sweden top goal scorer.
Sweden coach Erik Hamren stated that it was disappointing for Zlatan not to end his career with a victory and that the team tried everything they can. Unfortunately, things did not go as plan and the match ended in defeat. The coach had acknowledged the contribution of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the team and admitted that he would be losing a valuable player for the team.

Erik Hamren said that he will be hard to replace and that we should not expect to get a player of his quality anytime soon in the Sweden team. He stated that Zlatan is a legend in the world of football and want to wish him good luck for the remaining part of his career.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has recently signed a contract with Manchester United after having left PSG. He will be playing under new manager Jose Mourinho, who is determined to build a team to challenge for the Premier League as from next season itself.
