Zlatan Ibrahimovic appeared as a guest on ABC's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' show on Tuesday night and in one his most memorable interviews to date, he appeared to confirm that he will play for Sweden at the World Cup.
I mean, there's not many people who can single-handedly book a plane ticket to this summer's competition but this is Zlatan.
In the interview, Zlatan also put host Jimmy Kimmel in his place when he said that Amercian's call football 'soccer'. Just check out his priceless reaction.
The 36-year-old boasted that he put Sweden on the map during the chat with Kimmel and later claimed that he is a gift to Los Angeles, saying: "I've had my eyes on L.A. I wanted to give them my gift."
He also spoke about how he 'caused an earthquake' because his debut goal for the Galaxy was so good, but perhaps his biggest statement involved his participation in the World Cup.

He's right. The World Cup wouldn't be the same without the great man, but Sweden didn't exactly struggle to qualify for the competition, knocking out Italy back in November thanks to a fine defensive display in the play-off second leg.
It begs the question - do Janne Andersson's side really need the experience of Ibrahimovic this summer?

It certainly brings debate, but one man who certainly thinks he can make a difference is the 36-year-old LA Galaxy striker, who's confidence and self belief will surely lift the country this summer.
