Zlatan Ibrahimovic has teased a potential Sweden comeback this summer once again
In an advert the veteran claims his odds of playing at the World Cup in Russia are ‘sky high’
His potential return to the national side is the subject of an advert for BetHard, where Ibrahimovic finds himself at a tattoo parlour.
He is asked what the odds of him making Sweden’s 23-man squad for the finals are, replying ‘sky high’.
But then he appears to go back on his words, insisting that ‘high odds mean no chance.’
It comes after he tweeted on Sunday to say his chances were ‘sky high’.

Ibrahimovic retired from international duty after Euro 2016 but may return for the World Cup
The 36-year-old tweeted to say his chances of making World Cup were ‘sky-high’ on Sunday
The 36-year-old is building up his fitness after fully recovering form a serious knee injury suffered in Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht a year ago.
It cut short his debut season in England and confined to making only seven appearances in his second.
After leaving Old Trafford for MLS in March he has scored three goals in three games for LA Galaxy.
