Sweden are still in the running for the 2018 World Cup. They will have to win a playoff against another UEFA team but have been playing well as of late. Sweden's current squad would be a fun addition to the World Cup, but do you know what would be more fun?
It is Zlatan Ibrahimovic's birthday today. Today, October 3, 2017, Zlatan turns 36 in people years. I say in people years because we all know Zlatan is actually ageless. A descendant of the stars.
You don't have to get Zlatan anything. Zlatan already has everything he could possibly need (except for a functioning knee but he's working on that). Instead, celebrate Zlatan's birthday with 13 minutes of beautiful Zlatan goals.
Manchester United have reportedly offered Zlatan Ibrahimovic a contract to play for them when he's done rehabilitating the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season, with an eye toward a transition to a coaching role.
If you needed further proof that Zlatan is royalty, or if you just wanted to see a picture of Zlatan with a giant banknote with his face on it, today is your lucky day.
He still doesn't have a team to play on, but Zlatan's Instagram remains as amazing as ever.
Picture it: you're playing some kind of first person video game. You're almost done. The last level is situated in an industrial complex, but you're not sure what kind. The end of the level is through a big garage door. The final boss lies in wait. This is it. This is the moment. You push the button to open the door. A whooshing sound, then the door begins to creak open. Steam pours out of the opening. You strain your eyes to get a glimpse of what you're about to face. Finally, it comes into focus.
LOOK OUT IT'S ZLATAN!
