AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been recalled into the Swedish national senior men's team for the World Cup qualifiers.

This latest development is coming five years after the super striker hanged his international boots from football.

Ibrahimovic decided to quit international football after Sweden failed to make it out of the group stage at the EURO 2016 championship.

But before he made that decision, Zlatan Ibrahimovic played 116 games for Sweden netting 62 goals in the process.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been talking with Sweden coach since November last year over a return to the national team before he eventually got the call-up on Tuesday, March 16.

Sweden take on Georgia and Kosovo in World Cup qualifiers at the end of March and also face Estonia in a friendly.

And should Zlatan Ibrahimovic continue with his impressive form this season for AC Milan, then he is expected to play for Sweden this month.

He has scored 14 times in just 14 appearances for the Rossoneri this season as they have battled with local rivals, and Zlatan's former side, Inter for the title.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Manchester United youngster Ramon Calliste is now the proud of Global Watches which is a company that rakes in around £5m a year which is an incredible one.

The Welsh footballer failed to make it to the top of his football career before he quit with stint at Manchester United where he trained with the likes of Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Ronaldo.

But after finding it difficult to break into Manchester United's first team, Ramon Calliste decided to move out at Old Trafford and joined Liverpool where he was the top scorer for the reserve team.

Despite his brilliant performance in the reserve team at Liverpool, Calliste was unable to enter the main team and the frustration forced him to Scunthorpe in 2006.
