Zlatan Ibrahimovic still hasn't officially confirmed he's playing in Russian Federation this summer.

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is going to Russian Federation for the FIFA World Cup 2018.

Featuring on Tuesday's episode, Ibrahimovic said: "I'm going to the World Cup, yes".

The former Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint Germain and Manchester United (whew!) striker has announced himself to the American market in a major way with this appearance, in which he once again promised that we'd see him in Russian Federation this summer.

"A World Cup without me wouldn't be a World Cup".

Ibrahimovic, 36, retired from worldwide football following Sweden's failure to get out of the group stage at Euro 2016, but he recently said that Andersson's staff had been in touch with him regarding his availability for the World Cup.

"If I say more, people will blame me".

He said: 'I want to play football, we'll see what happens. Visa says the Swedish forward will be the face of its global marketing campaign heading into the upcoming World Cup.

Zlatan's last appearance at the World Cup finals was with Sweden in 2006.

"The chance of me playing in the World Cup is skyhoga #FifaWorldCup2018", he tweeted. I repeat if I feel well and if I want to, I'll be there'.

Internationally, the marksman turned out 116 times for his homeland, scoring 62 goals in the process, before announcing his retirement after Sweden exited the 2016 European Championship.

Sweden are in the same group as world champions Germany, Mexico and South Korea this summer.
