Zlatan: I put France on the map

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed he 'put France on the map' ahead of Sweden's crunch European play-off against Denmark.

Sweden international Ibrahimovic joined Les Parisiens from Milan in 2012 and has won three consecutive Ligue 1 titles as well as breaking the club's all-time goalscoring record during his time in the French capital.

The 33-year-old will now hope to reach the European Championship in France next year with his country and hinted he could call time on his international career should they fail to qualify for the final tournament.

"I would love to play at the European Championship in France," the PSG forward told a press conference.

"I have played there for four years. I have put Sweden on the world map and now I have put France on the world map, too.

"If it's over (for me) after the playoffs? We'll see. If you're asking me now? No. If you ask me after the playoffs? I don't know," said Ibrahimovic.
