Celtic hero Larsson and Zlatan have both starred at World Cup and Euro finals for their country. And with the countdown well and truly on to Russia 2018 – the duo jokingly announced they are ready to pull on their boots.

United hitman Ibrahimovic suffered a cruciate ligament injury in April last year and last appeared for Jose Mourinho’s side on Boxing Day against Burnley.

Sweden earned their place at this summer’s World cup after a 1-0 playoff victory over Italy.

Meanwhile, Larsson recently admitted he wants to manage at the highest level in England. 

He said: "I want to leave Sweden. I want to go out into management and that means Europe.

"Where do I see myself down the line? In England somewhere.
