Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimović has been ruled out of the upcoming European Championships with a knee injury. 

The 39-year-old picked up the injury during AC Milan's 3-0 Serie A win over Juventus last week.

The Swedish FA confirmed the news on Twitter on Saturday saying;

"Today, Zlatan has informed [coach] Janne Andersson that his injury will stop him from participating in the European Championship this summer.

“Get well, Zlatan, we hope to see you on the football field again soon!”

Ibrahimović retired from international duty back in 2016 but made a surprise return in March in the 1-0 win over Georgia.

The return made him the oldest player to represent his country, eclipsing the previous record of 38 years and 59 days held by goalkeeper Thomas Ravelli.

Sweden play their first match of the tournament against Spain in Seville on June 14, before also facing Slovakia and Poland in Group E.
