Zlatan could start against Montenegro

Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic could start this Saturday's Euro 2016 qualifier away to Montenegro despite only a brief turn out for his club side PSG after a seven week injury lay-off.

At a press conference in Stockholm on Monday, coach Erik Hamren said that Zlatan was "unique" and would see how he got on in training during the week, but would not rule out his captain starting in Podgorica on Saturday.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc had reportedly told the media after Ibrahimovic's return at the weekend that he hoped that he would not be rushed back too soon by the Swedish national side.

Sweden follow Montenegro with a friendly against Euro 2016 hosts France a week on Tuesday and it's likely that Ibrahimovic will be rested for that game.
