Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on first LA Galaxy start

Los Angeles Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has suggested that he will come out of worldwide retirement to play for Sweden in this summer's World Cup finals.

The 36-year-old Swede continued his inspired form for the Galaxy on Sunday (AEST), scoring the victor in the first half at a sold-out Toyota Park in Chicago.

The former Manchester United and Sweden striker had made a dramatic arrival in MLS earlier this month, scoring twice on his debut in a 3-2 win over Los Angeles FC.

Rumours of an worldwide return, however, have been growing, and on Sunday Ibrahimovic suggested that he may well make an appearance in Russian Federation.

Skyhöga translates to "sky high" in English, leaving many to believe the 36-year-old, who retired from the Swedish national team after being knocked out of the Euro 2016 competition, would make a shocking return to worldwide football.

With 62 goals in 116 games, Zlatan is Sweden's all-time top scorer and sixth most-capped player in history.

Ibrahimovic has not played for Sweden since the European Championships in France two years ago, where they finished rock bottom of their group after collecting just one point.
