XtraTime Web Desk: The FIFA World Cup 2018 can be even more exciting, as Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dropped the biggest hint that he might be seen playing in Russia in June.

The 36-year-old, whose last appearance at the World Cup finals was with Sweden in 2006, retired from international duty following the 2016 European Championship.

But the charismatic striker, now plying his trade in the MLS with LA Galaxy, used his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to whet the appetite regarding a potential return to Sweden.

Although it remains to be seen in what capacity the former Manchester United star will be in Russia for, fans will undoubtedly be hoping it's a pitch return, with Sweden facing Germany, Mexico and and South Korea in Group F.

Speaking to Kimmel at LA, he said: 'I'm going to the World Cup, yes.

'I just said I'm going to the World Cup. If I say more, people will hang me so I have to be careful what I say now.

'A World Cup without me wouldn't be a World Cup.'
