Zlatan starts tonight against Montenegro

Captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic will start tonight as Sweden's Euro 2016 qualifying campaign resumes with a tough game away against Montenegro.

Erik Hamrén's Sweden are in Podgorica to face Montenegro at the Gradski stadium with both teams aiming to make up ground on the top two of Austria and Russia.

Captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who only resumed playing for his club side PSG against Marseilles last weekend after six weeks out with an Achilles tendon injury, has been passed fit to start the game.

Defender Mikael Lustig is also back in the starting line-up while Celtic striker John Guidetti makes the bench.

Third placed Sweden remain undefeated after a win and two draws in Group G. Montenegro are a point below Sweden and have forwards Mirko Vučinić and Stevan Jovetić who can cause any defence a few problems. Kick-off is at 8.45 p.m.
