It was set to be a triumphant return for the enigmatic forward but on Saturday afternoon, it was confirmed that Ibrahimovic will, unfortunately, miss the upcoming tournament after suffering a knee injury.
Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that after the announcement of conservative therapy was needed to recover, he will be absent.
