Stockholm - Sweden will wait until Thursday before deciding whether Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fit to face Russia in that evening's Euro 2016 qualifier, the player himself revealed on Tuesday.
"I can't give an answer today. We will wait for Thursday," Ibrahimovic, 33, said at a press conference in Stockholm.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has missed his club's last four matches, including the 3-2 Champions League win over Barcelona, with a heel problem.

He trained apart from his Sweden colleagues on Tuesday morning and said his fitness was "on the right road".
However, he added: "When you go out onto the pitch, you need to be 100 percent in my opinion. When I do it I almost feel like a zombie."
Sweden, who began Euro 2016 qualifying Group G with a 1-1 draw in Austria last month, also host Liechtenstein on Sunday.
