Zlatan doubts ahead of Estonia friendly

As Sweden prepares to take on Baltic neighbour Estonia, it is unclear whether its star player will make an appearance.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic was spotted training with his national side on Wednesday, just three days after scoring three times for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain as they crushed Sainte Etienne 5-0 at Parc des Princes at the weekend.

The 32-year-old appeared to be in good form but Sweden's coach Erik Hamren later told a news conference that he has a throat problem and may not be well enough to play.

"There's a little question mark over Zlatan, he was only allowed to train for 30 minutes today," Hamren told a news conference on Wednesday.

The country missed out on a spot in the World Cup in Brazil after losing a two-legged playoff to Portugal.

Tonight's match comes ahead of their first Euro 2016 qualifying game on Monday, when they will travel to Austria.
