Sweden's star striker, Zlatan Ibrahimović, is to be rested for Thursday's friendly, the national side's coach Erik Hamrén told a press conference on Monday.

"I don't want to burn Zlatan out before the summer. That's why I've taken this decision. That's all there is to it," Hamrén said.

Both teams are preparing for the Euro 2016 finals, which will be held in France in June and July. Sweden qualified for the tournament with a win over neighbouring Denmark in November.  

During today's press conference, Hamrén also fielded questions about the security situation in Turkey, in light of recent bomb attacks. Hamrén said that he was aware of the issues, but that the match would be held as planned in Antalya, southern Turkey.

Earlier, commercial broadcaster TV4 said that it would be covering the match from Stockholm.
